Celebrate Grandparents’ Day with Story Monsters Ink!


September 13, 2015 is National Grandparents’ Day, and Five Star Publications, Inc. is celebrating Story Monster style! Since its August 2014 debut, Five Star’s delightful literary magazine, Story Monsters Ink has welcomed thousands of subscribers, including parents, educators and grandparents. Colorful and vibrant, each issue explores the best in children’s literature, featuring internationally acclaimed authors, celebrity spotlights, book reviews, recommended reading lists and much more.

“Story Monsters Ink was created with making memories in mind,” says Linda F. Radke, founder and president of Five Star Publications, Inc. “With Grandparents’ Day quickly approaching, it’s wonderful to think about how children’s lives are enriched by their grandparents. Reading together, enjoying outings and sharing life experiences—this is what memories are made of.”

Whether grandparents live close to their grandchildren or are distanced geographically, a subscription to Story Monsters Ink can strengthen family ties as the magazine is shared among loved ones. An online subscription to the monthly publication is free of charge, and printed copies of each issue are available for an affordable paid subscription.

“A gift subscription to Story Monsters Ink could be given from a child to his or her grandparents in honor of Grandparents’ Day,” says Radke, “and grandparents could share the magazine with their grandchildren, simply as another way to say ‘I love you. Let’s read!’”

Story Monsters Ink also provides young readers with the opportunity to write. With adult supervision—from a teacher, parent or grandparent—children can submit book reviews and feature stories for possible publication. Another highlight of the magazine, “Conrad’s Classroom,” teaches children about science and the natural world through the eyes of award-winning author and educator Conrad J. Storad.

Featuring Genevieve and DC from Disney Junior’s Choo Choo Soul and Mercer Mayer of Little Critter fame, the August 2015 issue of Story Monsters Ink welcomed more than 100,000 viewers. Past issues have featured Sesame Street’s Caroll Spinney, the puppeteer behind Big Bird, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, and Paul Goldschmidt of the Arizona Diamondbacks. “As Story Monsters Ink celebrates its first anniversary, we look forward to introducing children to many more books, authors, inspiring professionals and learning opportunities,” says Radke. “Most importantly, we love how literature can strengthen relationships across generations. The role grandparents play in their grandchildren’s lives can be so rewarding, and we’re proud to provide this magazine as another tool they can use to teach, share and enjoy!”
