Finally Published !

I have finally published the first coloring books in my series of educational coloring books.
The subject is geography. They are "story" coloring books. A grandma(Grandma Joy) and grandpa (Grandpappy Happy)take their grandchildren to each of the states in the U.S. to teach them about the state by experience.The children learn things about each that they should be taught in school, but are not being taught.While they are having fun coloring they are learning the state capital, where it is located, when it became a state, state flag,animal,flower,tree, plus many important and interesting things about that state.
Please look at my new web site www.grandmajoyandgrandpappyhappy.com and get a preview of the books, then let me hear your comments and suggestions.
When I finish all 50 states I will be doing other subjects always featuring Grandma Joy and Grandpappy Happy and the Grandchildren.
I would also like to start a Nation wide campaign to have parents and grandparents visit their local schools to read to them and tell them stories.All you have to do is phone your local school and ask if you may come read to the children. The school will guide you and welcome your help.


  1. Yeah, Alston! Congratulations. I can't wait to see the finished product. I know how much work -and love - you put into them, and I can only imagine how proud you must feel.


  2. Thank you so much Don.I am really excited about the books, and I'm having nothing but GOOD comments about them.I have had teachers tell me they really are good teaching aides.
    Best, Alston

  3. What a great idea, Alston! Learning, doing art and having fun all at the same time. I hope you have gresat success with this series and that parents really embrace them.

  4. Thank you Debbie. I am having great fun.Best of all I am getting really good feed back from teachers. Our public schools are really strapped for cash, but I am getting orders from private schools.If I could afford it I would GIVE every child the books but of course I can't afford that. but one day I hope to have a Foundation that will be able to. I just feel SO strongly that our little children need to be learning more than they are.
