Last but certainly not least, I am so excited to announce the second runner-up in the OutBACK TO SCHOOL Contest::: Ava Thomas!
The two things I love most about Ava’s submission are that she found the wonder in a small, usually overlooked animal and how wonderfully she depicted the sounds the blue mountain tree frog makes. That is called onomatopoeia, kids, and Ava is great at it!
I am very proud of Ava and her inventive essay and colorful artwork. Girl, keep striving as a student and researcher!
She will receive a signed and paw-printed copy of Are We There, Yeti? to commemorate her good work. Please feel free to congratulate and encourage Ava in the comments!
