It’s not every day students can say they take classes with a published author—especially one who’s only in third grade.
Joselyn Henry, a student in Ed Borgen’s class as Hance Elementary, recently had a story she wrote called “The Adventures of a Cat-Loving Girl,” published in the book Kitties, a Couscous Collective Collection.
Joselyn’s cousin, and artist in San Francisco, illustrated the artwork in the story.
Joselyn’s mom, Jamie Henry, said her daughter, writes about what she knows best.
“She loves cats and loves to read,” she said. “She writes often, and this whole experience has heightened her interest in writing.”
Henry said her daughter credits Pine-Richland teachers for encouraging her to read and write, including second-grade teacher Pamela Beauseigneur, who challenged her with reading assignments.
The story doesn’t end there.
Joselyn has five more volumes about kitties should a follow-up anthology be in the works. In addition, the third grader likes to write about friendships.
