John the Baptist Imagination Station program
Children using John Avery Whittaker’s newest program for his most popular invention, the Imagination Station, are giving the program a collective “thumbs up”.
“When I was programming this adventure, I wanted kids to get a unique way to look at the unique man known as John the Baptist,” says Whittaker. “I want to thank James Fornof for helping me program this adventure.” While the program is primarily about John the Baptist, it features a number of “supporting characters,” including Micah, a follower of John; Salome, a spoiled princess; and Jarus, a noble palace guard.
Aubrey Shepard was the first to try the new program. “Mr. Whittaker persuaded me to try the program,” she says. “It’s a really touching adventure and it gave me a lot to think about.”
