People say kids don't read enough books these days, but one young pupil at T.S. Cooley Elementary Magnet School in Lake Charles, Los Angeles, would beg to differ. Over the course of the past school year, five-year-old Sophia Moss read through nearly the entire kindergarten and first-grade sections of her school's library.

In addition to her passion for reading, Sophia has already begun writing her first book, a story about a superhero turtle titled "Sophia's Pet."
