New Children's Book, SURPRISING SILHOUETTES 2, Visualizes How People View the World
Connie Tamaddon, author of "Surprising Silhouettes" (ISBN: 978-0977801831) announces release of "Surprising Silhouettes 2" for Apple iPad. Tamaddon, a respected photographer, has a repeat performance with her unique use of light properties and shadows to create a clever read-out-loud guessing game that illustrates that not everything is as it first seems.
Using unusual materials to fashion seemingly familiar shapes, Tamaddon creates an imaginative way to entertain and enlighten readers young and old, and provides a playful yet serious opportunity for parents and children to discuss the dangers of pre-judging objects and people.
"I was motivated to create a second book when I became aware of the positive response from young readers, parents and educators. Being able to read 'Surprising Silhouettes 2' on the iPad becomes an interactive experience, bringing the silhouettes and objects to life," says Tamaddon.
As the result of Tamaddon's dedication to inspiring creativity in children and helping individuals whose voices are not always heard, she is donating all profits from "Surprising Silhouettes 2" to College Track, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping underprivileged students obtain a college degree.
About College Track: College Track is a national education nonprofit that empowers students from underserved communities to reach their dreams of a college degree. College Track's mission is to close the achievement gap and create college-going cultures for students who are historically and currently under-represented in higher education.
They actively engage students over the course of eight years, from the summer before high school through college graduation. Their students join with limitless aspirations and College Track provides them with a comprehensive program and encouraging learning environment that empowers them to succeed.
In the 2013/2014 academic year, College Track will serve over 1,600 high school and college students across our 6 sites in East Palo Alto, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Colorado. Over the past 16 years, more than 90 percent of their high school seniors have been admitted to four-year universities, and their students have graduated college at 2.5 times the national average for low-income students (19.5 percent). Over 85 percent of their students will be the first person in their family to earn a college degree.
