Mr. Circle Man is about a little boy whose physical appearance of being chubby prompts his aunt to give him the nickname Mr. Circle Man.

Instead of being upset with his new name, he considers himself “first class” and enjoys exploring his environment while learning about concepts, positive values, and attitudes.

He is a great learner. In fact, he feels so good about himself and what he has learned that he anticipates a name change!


Miss Johnson’s Class with Jack, Janet, Jamie, Jerry, and Vicky

Grenyion Cover WebThe students in Miss Johnson’s class are high-spirited eager learners who respond freely to their teacher and peers.

Their varied personalities, challenges, and conflicts abound, but the children conquer all to learn and work together harmoniously. They learn such life lessons as raising their hands, waiting their turn, listening to others’ opinions, respecting others, and MUCH MORE!

The story shows how students can conquer inner and outer conflicts, emotionally, socially, and academically. Their teacher is caring, creative, competent, and consistent, which makes a big difference in their academic success.

Miss Johnson’s Class confirms that children can cultivate and learn with the right attitude toward themselves and others, and can cope effectively beyond the classroom. The book also promotes the importance of creating a child-friendly environment.

“A gold standard teacher who is consistent, caring, competent, and creative with a good character makes the difference for lifelong success in his or her students’ lives.” – Marilyn King, Olympian Thinking Coach, USA

“A child-friendly school works together to make everyone succeed and makes every child feel like a winner. Consequently, the teacher plays a pivotal role in the development of a child-friendly environment.” – Palsy

Wilkin, P.E.O, Department of Education, Nevis “Literature can be used to meet all the needs of children. Therefore, we need to immerse them with all genres of literature for their pleasure and success.” – Dr. Jossett Smikle, UWI, Mona, Jamaica
