Third graders at VES are published authors

The book “When We Grow Up,” is a best seller at Vilonia Elementary School.

Written by third graders, in the classroom of teacher Kathy Moore, students showcased the book, Wednesday, to their parents.

“They are not only published writers,” Moore told parents in attendance for the reveal. “They are illustrators. They wrote, typed, re-wrote and matched their story and picture.”

The students began the process in October. The finished product was shipped on Dec. 15, for printing and they received the results this week. The cost of the books are $19.95.
