What a cute little wunderkind. W-U-N-D-E-R-K-I-N-D. Wunderkind. While the 6-year-old phenom was unfortunately eliminated from the Scripps National Spelling Bee, she certainly won Most Precocious In Show.
Lori Anne Madison made it to the national bee by correctly spelling the word "vaquero." She read her first book (Hop on Pop) before she was two. In addition to spelling, she likes "snails, slugs, tadpoles, water striders" and "baby snakes."
