I highly recommend this book. I rate this book a 5 out of 5. I was in no way compensated for this review. It is my own opinion. Sep 27, Alain Burrese rated it really liked it. It features the role model Leonard Wilson Jr. Wilson as well as one of their favorite television stars. The meeting takes a bit, but they get it. I like the idea of this book.

It has a positive message and I believe kids need more positive role models in their lives. At 80 pages, it is a pretty easy book to read. Obviously, I'm not the target market. I let me daughter, who is 8 read it too. And here's the thing, she though it was sort of boring. She likes the Wimpy Kid books, Narnia books, and a ton of others. Like me, she reads a lot. This book was a bit harder for her to get into, and I think she only read it all the way through because I encouraged her to do so and wanted to discuss with her before this review.
She just thought it was boring, but said it was okay. It didn't have the excitement or characters that she enjoys in so many other books. So, while I like the premise and lesson of the book, I think the series will have to crank it up a notch with entertainment value to really catch on. I do want to give it four stars because I like positive things for our kids.

I loved the concept of this book! The idea of mixing the story of two urban twins with the inspiring account of how of a REAL LIFE role model became a successful businessman is brilliant. The fact is most kids aspire to be things that only a few people can achieve: It is especially true in the inner city where kids don't always have good role models in their lives to emulate.
This book is important because it introduces children to a real person who has achieved something attainable, but significant, even though he didn't have many advantages in childhood. He tells his life story in the context of the fictional tale, while escorting the twins around the major Las Vegas hotel where he is an executive. The twins are funny and have distinct personalities which draw you in. Letty, the girl is unpredictable and chatty often way too chatty for her own good! In the center of the book is a delightful segment where the twins spot one of their favorite singing idols in Las Vegas and then begin a chase to find her and get her autograph and photo.

I am sure older elementary students will enjoy this book while teachers will be able to use it in several ways. It is a perfect addition to the Social Studies curriculum - the communities unit where students explore jobs. It is also a great choice for anyone giving an after school program book club. I can't believe someone didn't think of the idea before this.
