New children’s book series teaches crucial lessons about life and success

Book series introduces kids to real life role models embedded in an adventure filled story.

PRLog - Jul. 21, 2012 - WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Most of us can remember at least one book that changed the way we viewed our world - a book that opened our minds to new possibilities, and even inspired us to dream. The new Thompson Twins Book Series might just be that inspiration for this generation of children who need to believe in themselves and their capacity to live successful lives.  Dr. Lesa Hammond, author of the new series, knows the positive impact role models can have in a child’s life. She created the book series with characters and role models that are relatable to young readers.  

The books follow twins, Letty and Carlos Thompson as they embark on different adventures that allow them to meet and interact with, what Hammond calls, Everyday Role Models.  People like nurses, policewomen, and businessmen who are plucked right out of their community and onto the pages of each book.   “Using real life role models imparts a powerful message to young people,” says Hammond. “They learn that success is achievable even when faced with adversity.” With the rising rates of crime in the inner city, this salient message is increasingly important for the youth growing up in these areas.

The first book of the series; The Thompson Twins Las Vegas Adventure, spins a delightful tale as the twins take their first plane trip, meet with a top hotel executive and pursue an elusive superstar!   “I liked that everything that happened was a surprise,” said Andres Rivera, age 10, from Ascend School in Oakland, CA.

Refreshingly relatable to the daily lives of inner city children the Thompson Twins series still remains global in its appeal and is culturally appropriate for children from all backgrounds.  

The book is currently available for purchase through http://www.amazon.com or  http://www.achievementu.org.  The Thompson Twins is a project of Achievement U, Inc. – A non-profit organization devoted to empowering young people to reach for their dreams.
