Brickfilms Wiki

Tender Family Moments: Reading is FUN! is a 2008 comedy brickfilm by James Morr. It is about a man who takes his son to the library.[1] It is the follow-up to Tender Family Moments: The Birds and the Bees, from the same year.[2] The same characters soon reappeared in Ants.


Young boy Billy asks his dad what a library is. The dad freaks out for an uncomfortably long time, and then tells Billy that the library is a place "full of magic and books...but mostly books." Billy asks to go to the library, and the Dad warps himself and Billy beyond the infinite before appearing at the library. A horse coughs up a library card for Billy. Miss Librarian explains very loudly that Billy should always be considerate of other people because they are trying to read.

As Billy checks out a book, Miss Librarian warns Billy not to be late in returning the book. A man is late in returning a book, and Miss Librarian bombards the man with Koopa shells. Back at home, Billy throws the book away and declares "Reading is fun!" Billy and his dad laugh as nitrous oxide hisses into the room.[1]
