MEDFORD, Ore. — Local elementary students are getting a first-hand look into what goes into the books they read.
This year, Mrs. Hayes second grade class at Jackson Elementary School researched, wrote, illustrated and self-published their own book.
The classroom volunteer pitched the idea after one student said his book was boring. The 2nd graders say they look at all books and their authors differently now.
The students already have plans to write another book for their 3rd grade year.
