  • I love the fun graphics. I love that I can choose a story based on how much time I have. I love the fun stories and how everyone can relate to the topics. As a teacher, I love how the kids can make inferences and the story topics connect to so much curriculum.

  • I love the stories because they are creative, have a great moral or spark discussion with the boys, and they are different than other stories we read. The boys laugh through many of your stories and just find them awesome!
