A fun NEW title from: GRAMMY PAGS STORIES!

A little like Dr. Seuss's "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish"
this book, "Grammy's Rockin' Color Rap-a-licious Rap ~ Teaching Kids Colors" 
has a rockin' / rhymin' beat that kids will love!!
KINDLE and SOFT COVER VERSIONS ~ available: 



What others are saying: "a charming and fun rhyming book about colors" 
"readers will find themselves engaged in the pictures" 
"be prepared for many giggles from your little ones"




Boom Shee-boom-boom! Boom Shee-boom-boom! And so begins a rollicking and 
enjoyable preschool/early elementary rap on learning the concept of colors. The strong beat 
of the rap will appeal to children and will motivate them to learn in an lighthearted manner. 
The visuals echo the fun! The adorable digital illustrations use vivid bright colors with 
white backgrounds to focus readers' attention.

As an elementary Speech Language Pathologist, I will use this book with my normal 
neuro-developing children, those on the autism spectrum, those with intellectual disabilities, 
and those with other learning disabilities. Research has shown that music-based learning 
strengthens and builds connections with content areas. The use of rap motivates 
otherwise uninterested students who have difficulties grasping concepts. It is a 
catalyst for students to think, learn, and recall concepts.

Following the rap are fun-filled worksheets to strengthen the connections made. 
An added benefit for sure!



Silly Grammy is at it again! 
This time she’s teaching kids colors to 
a "Rockin’ Color RAP-a-licious Rap." 


Kids can clap and stomp their feet, 
to a boom-shee-boom-boom, rockin’ beat! 
Go Grammy, go Grammy, go Grammy, GO!!

From the Author

This fun, funny little rhyme / rap book was inspired by Tyler, a little boy with autism. He was having a difficult time learning his colors, so I wrote this book for him, hoping the association of sound, pictures, rhythm, and words would help.  Working on "Grammy's Rockin' Rap-a-licious Rap ~ Teaching Kids Colors" with illustrator, Nicole Resele, was such a joy. A long time ago, Nicole ~ "Nikki" ~ was one of my sweet little 4th grade students.  Now, she's a teacher and recently earned her masters degree. I would never have imagined (when she was in my 4th grade class) that someday I would have the privledge of working with her on a project like this.  Nikki has added great detail, thought, and personality to each illustration. Her creativity, her sense of humor, and her heart come sparkling through and might remind some of Dr. Seuss's darling book, "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish."  I am just over the moon delighted with the end results, and I think kids are going to LOVE this book - just because of Nikki!!
