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.

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.
