LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - Over 100 students at the Children of Joy Learning Academy are now published authors, and they celebrated on Thursday with a special book signing event.

Students in the pre-school and the after school programs were able to write their own books using publishing kits given to the school by Studentreasures Publishing.

Over 12 weeks, the authors worked with their teachers to plan out and put together the books, which covered topics like their favorite animals, how they would use three wishes and what makes them special.

Program Director Vicky Reddick-Taylor was glad to give students this experience.

“It was absolutely amazing we tried to teach and try to incorporate the kids lot of things that we do and so teaching them the parts of the book I think was the most satisfying gratifying thing for me just them learning about the book how to handle the books and what it takes to be an author and an illustrator,” she said.

This is the second year the academy has made authors of its students.
