We want ... young people ... to want to read. If we can help them become better people in the long run as well, so much the better.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 12, 2016
The Sammi Series of children’s picture books, written and illustrated by Syd Nish Marks, is intended for preschoolers to elementary school students. It is designed to promote literacy and positive character traits among children who are in the early stages of forming the reading habits and interpersonal skills that will stay with them throughout life.
The first book, “Hello, Sammi Is My Name,” follows the antics of a bright and energetic girl who is extremely excited about beginning school, only to find herself dealing with a bad case of the first-day-in-the-first-grade jitters. She faces the challenges with composure and compassion, demonstrating a level of maturity that is both admirable and imitable for young readers.
As the Sammi Series continues, each new adventure will bring entertaining accounts of life lessons in positive thinking and cultivating meaningful friendships. Response to the first book has been enthusiastic and the base of ardent followers is expanding rapidly.

Books from The Sammi Series are gifts that will be of immediate help to youngsters in today’s confusing world, and they are the ultimate in gifts that will keep on giving.”
