The book began as a first-grade class assignment last year.
“Nia Mya shared that she was a great big sister to an annoying little brother,” teacher Beth Hankins told CBS News.
Nia Mya’s mom, Cherinita, turned the book into a summer assignment, encouraging Nia Mya to work on getting the words and sentences just right.
Now, Nia Mya has a fan base and attends book signing for her book. She said she learned something very valuable from the whole experience.
“I learned to follow my own dreams,” she said.
