“Nia Mya shared that she was a great big sister to an annoying little brother,” her first-grade teacher, Beth Hankins, told CBS. 

Her mother, Cherinita, then advised Nia Mya to extend the assignment into the summer. 

Nia Mya said it only took a few days to place all of her big sister expertise, including how to make learning enjoyable, in the book, which became available on Amazon last November. The book has since been branded with the website’s coveted best-seller tag. Hoover Mayor Frank V. Brocato even came by Nia Mya’s latest book signing.

When asked by CBS about her biggest takeaway from the experience, Nia Mya replied: “I learned to follow my own dreams.”
