Children’s book author Lisa Funari Willever included the students when they were fourth graders and their social students and computer project in her latest Nicky Fifth series.

The series are about the history, economy, and culture of New Jersey from the perspective of elementary school friends, Nicky and T-Bone, New Jersey’s Official Junior Ambassadors.

After reading Willever’s book, the students decided they wanted to create a book of their own about the Wildwoods.

Each student chose a place on the island and after researching and photographing their particular place, they wrote paragraphs encouraging people to visit the site.

The class book, The Island of the Wildwoods, will be found on Willever’s website www.nickyfifth.com.
