Auburn University EAGLES student Anna Moates and recent College of Education graduate Anna Penland have written and published a new children’s book telling the story of their friendship.

Moates is a fourth-year student in the college’s EAGLES program — for students with intellectual disabilities — collaborated with Penland, now a first-grade teacher at Augusta Circle Elementary in Greenville, South Carolina, on a book titled “Almost Twins: A Story of Friendship and Inclusion.” The self-published book, which features illustrations by Pavithra Pyarilal, tells Moates’ story as a young woman with Down syndrome in an open and educational way designed to reach children.
