jaredangFirst-grader Jared Ang attends Harding Elementary School in California.  His poem, “In the Rain Forest“, was selected as a Top Ten Winner in the K-3 age division for the Fall 2012 poetry contest.

Jared’s hobbies include reading, swimming, practicing karate, and playing the piano.  He also enjoys watching TV.  His favorite movies are Madagascar, Ice Age, and Wild Kratts.  These movies helped to inspire Jared to write his poem about the animals in the rain forest.

When he grows up, Jared hopes to become a pilot or doctor.  He also wants to write a book about animals because he loves animals and knows a lot of other kids love animals, too.  “Next time maybe I’ll write a poem about the ocean” Jared explains, “because I like to watch the fishes and the sea animals living in the deep ocean.”
