CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. — Cliffside Park School No. 3 students Madeline Murillo, Angela Kohout and Elizabeth Sagi will be featured on the PBS program "Classroom Close Up" Sunday, where they will talk about the success of their book  " Daddy's Heart, My Heart, The Purple Heart ."

12-year-olds Murillo and Kohout, and 10-year-old Sagi first partnered together to write the book on PTSD last May for a class project.

The students published the book with help from their teacher Michael Ryan. It has gone on to sell more than 800 copies and earned the authors praise from the likes of Gov. Christie and President Obama.

The feature will air Sunday at 6:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and again at 7:30 p.m. on PBS.
