Story written by Rhonda Paglia ~ "a Grammy Pags Story"

Rhonda Paglia is a children's author, a retired elementary teacher, and a "not so retired" grandmother from Pennsylvania. "Grammy Pags," as she is called, is the author of 4 children's books.  "Duke n' Matt ~ Rescue Road Warriors" will be her 5th children's book.

"The Little Lambs and the Very Special Mission" was her first children's book to be released to the public. This story came to her during her prayers for the children, teachers, and familes after the tragedy at Sandy Hook.  This gentle, sweet story is dedicated to the children and teachers of Sandy Hook Elementary School and offers the hope that the world will become a better place.  All the profits from the sale of this book go to the "Angels in Charge" Scholarship Award for students graduating from Newtown High School who meet the requirements and are planning a career in education.  

Other books by Rhonda Paglia: 

"Doonsey's Beach Adventure, the Great Rescue"  and "Doonsey's Beach Adventure, the Great Rescue, Coloring and Activity Book."  Doonsey is a little ocean crab that loves to explore.  His quiet exploring day becomes a great rescue day in the fun little adventure about a beach crab with a big heart.

Her current release is, "Three Little Gnomes and a Boy Named Orion."  Three little gnomes discover that they have a big problem.  They look for the solution and make a new friend in the process. Ratna Kusuma Halim created the illustrations for this charming story.  

All of Grammy Pags Stories are appropriate for kids 2+, reading level grades 2 - 3
