Whiz Kid: Burnett's the Next Silverstein

5-year-old Abigail is in another world.

Patch Whiz Kid

Name: Abigail Burnett, 5

School: Barnstable Inclusive Preschool Program

Accomplishment: Book aficionado

Key to Awesomeness: Nominator Jenn Steinhilber says that "Abby is hungry for knowledge. She likes gardening, nature and cooking, but most of all, she likes reading. She once told her mother, 'Mom, I don't know what it is, I just feel like I am in another world when I read books.'

"She reads her little brother, Ben, numerous books a day. Last week she took out her copy of The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein and drew her own copy! She copied, to the best of her ability, the pictures and words on each page including the author's portrait on the back!

"She will be starting kindergarten at the Charter School in September where she is expected to continue nourishing her passions."
