Currie releases new Juice & Berries book

When Tamicia Currie was a little girl, her mother once told her she had a gift to write her way in or out of anything. Today, as an Ahwatukee Foothills resident, Currie is following in the footsteps that her mother proclaimed over her as child by adapting a series of books to teach children about character values. She pens the books under The Juice & Berries Adventure Series and has a newly released book entitled, Do The Right Thing When Nobody’s Looking!

Do The Right Thing When Nobody’s Looking explores the issue of how to handle situations when you are provoked to anger. It teaches children how to place their emotions above the situation by using the six core values of character.

The Juice & Berries books are available at, and at Amazing Grace Bookstore in Tempe. Currie is also available to visit your school, class or event. She may be reached at (602) 743-7155.
