Students in April Barnes’ second grade class at Pine Grove Elementary school published a class book through a student-publishing program. The students planned, wrote and illustrated their own books using a free kit provided by Studentreasures Publishing.
The topic of their stories was The Best Part of Me. Each student designed a page that was put together into a color, hardcover book for his or her classroom. Parents were also given the opportunity to purchase a copy of the keepsake. Tanner Dumas said, “The best part of me is my feet. They can help me play soccer and shoot for the goal.” Writing came to life for these students by becoming published authors.
