But, Friday, Dr. Robert Vartabedian made a visit to the childcare center at Missouri Western State University.
Dr. Vartabedian read "A Griffin in the Garden" to kids at Y's Kids Early Learning Center on campus.
The youngsters listened intently to each and every word and some even asked questions during story time.
Y's Kids serves children ages 2 through 12.
