Fourth-grader, Addison Captain, made sure her education didn't stop when the last school bell rang, instead she spent her summer launching BrownBackpack.com, a Web site selling nearly 100 products to inspire children of color.

"I'm not like the other kids who play video games and watch TV," said Addison. "I like doing business work instead."

"We make backpacks, we have books on the Web site, we have phone cases, we have pillows and many things that inspire children," said Addison.

Addison is able to use images from Far Beyond the Treetops because her mother, Stephanie, wrote and published the book herself.
