Ivaylo Zahariev started the race of reading favorite children’s books whose faithful assistant was his eldest son Philip. Together they told the adventures of Franklin the turtle which was learning how to ride a bicycle. Meanwhile, the children learnt that Franklin might not go to a picnic because he was not hungry and that they could change fairy tales when they were wrong. “She is very beautiful” exclaimed the young storyteller Philip, catching a glimpse of one of the princesses in the audience and thus brought additional emotion into Franklin’s adventure. Of course, the most important moment turned out to be the end because everyone learnt that they should not give up, even if something might be so difficult as removing your auxiliary wheels.
