A second-grader at Speas Global Elementary has written her first
book. In “The Winston-Salem Chronicle,” Tevin Stinson writes about Taylor
Jones. Here is an excerpt:
With her first book, 8-year-old
Taylour Jones is encouraging other children to stand up and be the best person
they can be. The book, “Taylour J … Yeah, That’s Me!!!”, was released last
“I think writing, and reading,
is fun,” Taylour said. “I want to help other kids stand out so they won’t be
like other people.”
“Taylour J … Yeah, That’s
Me!!!” is an introduction to the 8-year-old and her family, including what she
stands for: being different. She wants to inspire others that being YOU is
always the best thing, especially when you embrace it.
A second-grader at Speas Global
Academy, Taylour is not the average 8-year-old and is more ambitious than some
with publishing her first book before she could even apply for a driver’s
permit, she is also the owner of Taylour Made Lemonade, a mobile lemonade stand.
During an interview with The
Chronicle earlier this week, Taylour said in the future she hopes to own her
own bakery. But before that she has a few more books to write.
“I want to write other books,
but I don’t have any ideas yet,” Taylour said. “I usually do my writing at home
in my mom’s photography room.”
