PAGE TURNER ANIMAL ADVENTURES

Boost summer learning with loads of fun virtual field trips, stories, activities, games, and special guests with Page Turner Animal Adventures!

This exclusive content is available to kids and families signed up for online summer reading on Beanstack.

You’ll get eight weeks of virtual adventures with the intrepid Storyologist, Page Turner (Nadler) and Kenny, her slap-stick sidekick. Together, they transform children into Storyologists and send them on comic quests to collect, tell, and write stories.

Journey through the “Once Upon a Time Machine” for virtual adventures each week based on these wild and wonderful animal themes:

  • Farmyard friends
  • Fish tales
  • Pet pals
  • Celebrity critters
  • Safari stories
  • Creepy crawlies
  • Fantastic beasts
  • Swamp stories

Page Turner Adventures offers five days of programming each week, full of professionally produced shows, author interviews, virtual field trips, and arts and crafts projects. For example, special guests include urban farmer Kamal Bell from Sankofa Farms (Durham, N.C.), Dustin Growick, the Dinosaur Whisperer, and real-life pet detective Jamie Katz and her sniffer dogs, Gable and Fletcher. Each week you get to take virtual field trips to see the work and worlds of all of the special guests.

READING COLORS YOUR WORLD

Reading in the summertime is a completely different experience than during the school year. Why? Because you only read what you want to read, instead of what you have to read! 

This is not true just for kids. Even grown-ups have a completely different mindset when it comes to vacation reading. That’s why beach reads are summer faves.
