Runner-up::: Ava Thomas!

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!
