Eastlake Elementary Students Write Children’s Books for Younger Buddies

Student author with his 2nd grade buddieStudents in Mrs. Cloward’s 6th grade class became first-time children’s book authors and illustrators all in an effort to help their 2nd grade buddies in Ms. Stalely’s class overcome difficulties. You see every 6th grade student wrote and illustrated a ‘buddy book,’ and gave it to their younger friends. The books were about different events kids encounter in life and how to best handle those events. Mrs. Cloward’s class worked on writing the books for about three weeks and they hope the younger students will understand they have buddies in 6th grade who are always there to help.

Congratulations to these young authors, keep up the good work!
