Fan loves stories. Fan's favorite stories are about friends, animals, animals with friends, the ocean, the sky, counting, art, people from far-away places, wizards, and birthday cakes. Is that all? Nope.

You'll always find Turner's nose in a book. Turner gets completely lost in any story and is easily transported into other worlds. When Turner is reading, nothing is a distraction. Turner? Turner? See, still reading.

Blink will read anything in sight. A sign. A cereal box. A wall. And books. Especially, books! You name it, Blink will read it. Sometimes all at once.

Alpha is a reading machine, reading book after book with laser focus. Alpha gets energy from reading. Sometimes, it's hard for Alpha to power off, especially at bedtime.

Hey kids, watch out for the Mind Munchers. These pesky creatures thrive in the summer months, munching on inactive minds of innocent children. How do you keep the Mind Munchers away from your brain? Easy. All you have to do is read. Reading keeps minds active, healthy and strong. Mind Munchers hate that.
