Washington Elementary School students recently attended The Children’s Literature Festival on the University of Central Missouri campus in Warrensburg.

The trip, sponsored by The Sedalia Area Literacy Council, included a visit with author/illustrator Henry Cole, who sketched the main character from his book, “A Nest For Celeste,” and donated it to the school.

The drawing and an autographed copy of the book were included in a basket as part of the literacy council’s annual tea and auction. The winner of the basket donated the drawing and book to be included in Washington’s library.
