A Louisiana kindergartner is proving she's in a class by herself when it comes to reading.

Five-year-old Sophia Moss read a staggering 875 books this school year. Sophia loves to read so much that she's finished almost every book in the kindergarten and first grade section of her local library.

"We'd go back in her room and she'd be reading instead of sleeping," Sophia's dad Carl Moss said. "She just loves to read and she does it all the time."

Sophia's dad says they're now checking out a total of 20 books each week.

Sophia is now an author herself, she's just written a story about a turtle with super powers.
