Landing Book Contest Winners

Four students from Landing School were named winners in the Glen Cove Public Library’s annual Write and Illustrate Your Own Book Contest. 

The contest invites aspiring student-authors in grades 2-6 to write and illustrate an original children’s book. Nearly 30 student-authors were recognized for their outstanding books out of the more than 150 entries received from both public and private schools.

Congratulations to the following students from David Smith’s fifth-grade class for combining their literary and artistic skills to produce books for all to enjoy: Michele Cruz for her book, “How to Take Care of a Parakeet”; Jose Santos and Giovanni White, who collaborated to write and illustrate a sports adventure titled “Soon-to-be All-Star Logan Thompson”; and Walter Gomez for his book, “The Wonderful World of Wolves.”
