Elementary students publish textbook

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Twelve area elementary school students are now published authors.

Today a class of fourth graders at Bradley Creek Elementary School presented the first signed copy of their book to Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo. It is titled "Wallen's World Takes a Trip Across North Carolina: A Social Studies Book."

Mrs. Wallen's class worked all year researching, writing and creating the textbook, which gives readers a virtual journey across the state. Students say their whole experience was very cool.

The book will be available for purchase next month. Anyone who wants to pick one up can call Bradley Creek Elementary.
