Napoleon Elementary School in Toledo, OH, has recently announced a new helper for their students! This little helper has brought his own method of helping students, a vending machine! But this vending machine doesn’t dispense sugary sodas or salty snacks, it dispenses knowledge in the form of books. That’s right, Inchy and his book vending machine are on the move again!

Inchy’s on his way to Ohio!

Inchy the Bookworm loves bringing books to eager kids and making reading fun. Inchy’s book vending machine doesn’t take cash, it dispenses books for the low price of FREE to the students (well, a gold inchy token that can be earned through various means, stay tuned).

I Don’t Want to Wait, How Do You Earn Tokens?

Alright, alright. Let’s run through how Napoleon Elementary gives the tokens to students. Students earn their Inchy Tokens by completing a reading challenge that’s appropriate for their grade level. Once the students earn the token, they take it to the book machine and get a book of their choice to keep for their personal libraries.
