Friendbots: Blink and Block Build a Fort (I Can Read Comics Level 2)

Let's read comics! I Can Read Comics is an early reader line that familiarizes children with the world of graphic novel storytelling and encourages visual literacy in emerging readers.

Blink and Block are back in another STEM-inspired I Can Read Comic by author-illustrator Vicky Fang!

Blink is silly and Block is logical, and they're best when they're working together! Whether they're searching for treasure, playing pretend, or learning to compromise, Blink's imagination and Block's clever ideas turn any ordinary day into the most fun ever. This time, the pair find a pile of boxes perfect for making a fort. But when the friendly competition starts heating up, will they be able to find a middle ground?

Friendbots: Blink and Block Build a Fort is a Level Two I Can Read Comic, geared for kids who are comfortable with comics and can read on their own but still need a little help.
