Fun Freetime: April Issue of Story Monsters Ink

Thirty years ago, Paulette Bourgeois introduced the world to a young, curious turtle named Franklin. Meet the author who continues to teach countless young readers lessons about friendship, honesty, and responsibility in a simple, heartening way.

Ever since he was a little boy, Dr. Leroy Chiao wanted to explore the galaxy. Now a veteran of four space missions, Astronaut Chiao uses his life of exploration and adventure to inspire others to pursue their dreams.

Also in this issue, we talk to F. Stewart Kallinger, a retired English teacher who has channeled his outrage over teachers unjustly being blamed for failing schools and low literacy rates into a new book. Susan Andra Lion teaches children about our world and its many living creatures through her beautifully illustrated books, Nancy Gee turns a challenge from her grandchildren into an award-winning book series, and Michael Bassen entertains young adult readers with his debut sci-fi tale. Our special contributor this month is author Joseph M. Yeager, who offers parents tips to delete cyberbullying.
