Randal the Reading Rat
Randal the Reading Rat travels to schools and libraries, collecting stories written by students in his Story Machine. He enjoys any story from the imagination of a child and listens to every true tale from a child’s life.
Randal believes that everyone has a story inside of them and encourages children to write about what they love, who they dream to be, how to build something, or a fantastical tale from their imagination. “Just write!" Randal says. "Write about what you know, or what you think about. Don't worry about what others might think. Everyone has a story to share. All stories are important!”
In his spare time, Randal loves to read and write, of course!
