Over six million children live with someone other than their parents. Children today have parents that are either: divorced, deceased, incarcerated, or in the military overseas.
A Country Adventure addresses this present issue. It gives some consolation to these types of situations. Here we suggest the father is called to military duty. Some children go live with their paternal grandfather who teaches them some important values, and the details of country life.
Experience some adventures of children living in the country with their beloved paternal grandfather and mentor.

About the Author
Joe L. Blevins is an author of over fifteen years and an illustrator for over forty years. He is a person of Choctaw descent. Joe has acted in a number of movies as a character actor so he could learn more about character development and script writing.
Joe's books range from horror, historical, and more family oriented tales. Joe's stories always use an element of history as a base for the premise. Joe uses life events and details to let his stories ring true to the reader. Most of all: reading is to be fun and informative for all ages.
Joe worked for twenty-six years in electronics, and twelve years as a teacher at three different school districts. While he acted as a teacher he was heavily involved in various reading programs. There he saw a need to make better stories for young readers. He saw what the students liked and what they did not. This was his real "education" as an author by learning that readers demand more than just a good story. They need something that "speaks" to them as a person. These are books that the reader can actually relate to.
Blevins worked with many students with learning disabilities. He also worked with some hearing impaired students. These students needed a story tailored for their needs with brightly colored illustrations to keep the reader interested.
Joe continues to write with his new series, "A Visit to Pawpaw's" for children and those that love to read to them. Joe invites you to read his stories and make comments, if you wish. Thank you.
