Publishing the Next Great Novel

Imagine what it must feel like to publish your first novel. For the kindergarten students at Washington Elementary it was pure joy. The students have written and illustrated their first books, and through the school’s publishing shop, were able to bind them. This meets literacy curriculum standards of vocabulary acquisition through writing. It also meets the standard of beginning to understand the concepts of print. Publishing a book in kindergarten opens new career paths for the student and prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
