Trinity was excited by the graphic novels and “365 days of Wonder” books, while Addison was interested in the “National Geographic” books about animals and the “Bad Guys” series. “I know Brixton is into anything Minecraft,”Ashley told the News. Cecilia said she was having fun with the “Pig the Pug” books, as well.
