Here's what others are saying about "The Adventures of Tommi Lance":
- “I did read all of the books when they came in. (I used
to be an Editor and just can’t help reading everything I get
my hands on.) I LOVED THEM. I think they are extremely usable for little
people, and they teach in an enjoyable manner. What more can you ask
Domini Williams, Regent Printing, Sonoma, CA
- “The Adventures of Tommi Lance is an extremely entertaining
and educational series of childrens’ books. If educators are
looking for a fun way to teach literacy and safety, the Tommi Lance
series is the way to go!
Children don’t like being lectured to about safety, so the situations
Tommi encounters present “teachable moments” in the context
of fun and exciting stories. Every educator will want to have a set
of these in their classroom...The illustrations are wonderfully alive
vivid. The stories are appropriate for children in pre-school and elementary
school, as either a read-aloud series or for independent reading. As
with teachers, parents can also read these fun books with their children
encourage reading and learning about safety. Every parent will want
to have a set of these in their home.” ~

children, in a non-threatening manner, everyday safety rules for both emergency
and non-emergency situations that they will retain for life. I would also
strongly recommend that parents share this reading to refresh their understanding
of these safety lessons. The illustrations are eye-catching and, together
with the story line, guaranteed to hold a child’s interest.”

- “As a Police Chief and a father, I was absolutely delighted
in the Adventures of Tommi Lance. I understand the importance of safety
and that accidents occur daily. Tommi Lance takes these serious situations
and turns them in to a fun way to teach our children how to react in
case of injury. With today’s busy lifestyle, we do not always
take the time to teach our children what to do in case of an emergency.
reading the book to my daughter she asked many questions about safety.
I did not realize the impact the book would have on her. Her new motto
is “Do you need help, cuz I can help you.” In Tommi’s
Adventures he takes everyday life and teaches us how and where to get
help. He is a delightful character that will be loved by kids of all
Gary Weeks, Chief of Police, Samson, Alabama
- “I was very impressed
when I read the first of four of The Adventures of Tommi Lance series.
The books are designed to help
the young reader understand the importance of safety and not to be afraid
of an ambulance. They are well written and easy for children to understand.
The illustrations are full of detail which brings the reader into the
story. I highly recommend these books for young readers as well as parents.
They are both educational and fun to read. Every household, library and
day care should have a copy of these books as a way to emphasize the
need for safety.”
