Here is an award-winning story by our co-author, Sara, that she wrote when she was in the 4th grade. As you can see, Sara always had the dream to be a children’s author. Even as a child, she had impressive talent and took the steps of action to make her dream real. Here is her original story with some new illustrations. Sara credits her fourth-grade teacher with having the vision to guide her through the creative process with lots of exercises all leading up to the final story. She also says that her favorite authors, including Beatrix Potter, Roald Dahl and Lucy Maud Montgomery, were part of her inspiration. I think you’ll notice those flavors in her writing style.
