Local 5-year-old publishes first book

5-year-old Abigail Falcaro spends her spare time writing books.

The Lehigh Valley kindergarten student wrote "The Princess Bird" and spent Monday handing copies out to students at Freemansburg Elementary School.

Abigail's grandmother says the idea came about when Abigail's parents flipped the script and had Abigail make up the bedtime stories instead of just reading them.

"There was one that she told over and over again. It had a beginning, middle and end. And that was 'The Princess Bird.' So he thought, maybe we should publish this," said Debbie Thomas, Abigail's grandmother.

Abigail has also had book signings at Barnes and Noble.
