NEW YORK (CBS5) -
A kindergartner at a Phoenix school has been selected by Scholastic Reading Club as one of eight Star Readers nationwide.
Caitlyn Guthrie, who attends Creative Castle Preschool and Kindergarten, was selected from among 14,000 entries submitted from September through December to the club.
Caitlyn will appear with the seven other honorees in the Scholastic Reading Club's February flyer and will receive a 10-book library, the club said.
Caitlyn's nomination said she reads for at least 30 minutes each day and loves to learn. She likes to read, she said, "because I sound out the letters and then I can say a whole bunch of words."
Parents and teachers submitted students' entries from September through December 2013 by sharing why the child is a Star Reader, along with an optional photograph and favorite book, the club said.
Winners were randomly chosen.
A total of 32 winners have been randomly selected and featured in one of five flyers (pre-school, kindergarten, first, second, third, fourth and fifth grades, and middle school) for February, March, April, and May.
