Isabella's big accomplishment

I am proud to announce that Isabella Corbett is the 1st place winner for the first grade level of the WGBY Reading Rainbow writing competition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At the end of March I mentioned her story in our blog. I can't say enough about how hard she worked on her story. She brainstormed every element of the story, wrote it, revised it a few times and took 3 days to illustrate it. It was very challenging but her perseverance and hard work has certainly paid off!! On May 18th we will attend a luncheon and award ceremony at the Eric Carle Museum. I am just so excited and proud of my girl! I can't wait to see her accept her reward. It's going to be such a special day!
Her story will now go on to the national competition to be judged for a shot at the grand prize (a laptop!!).
I scanned her story before we sent it so I am posting it as large as I can below so you can see the hard work of her award winning story!

Wow, what a great story! Isabella should be so proud of herself, what a wonderful way to be rewarded for her hard work. I love that Pita is one of the stars of the book! I remember when he was just a kitten, look how far he's come!
