Gary's Gray World banner

Join Ryan J. Cunningham, author of the children’s picture book, Gary’s Gray World, as he tours the blogosphere January 2 – January 25 on his first virtual book tour with Pump Up Your Book!

Gary's Gray World


When Gary’s father is too busy to play, a scary moment at the baseball field brings his dad rushing to the park to rescue him. But instead the two discover that making time for each other is the most important thing in a father and son relationship.

I feel like Chrissy Fanslau did a really good job at creating visuals for what Ryan J. Cunningham wanted…I see that the words are big, which is good for a young audience, especially so they can follow along and/or read it themselves, but I also see that some pages don’t have images…This makes this book wonderful for transitioning readers…I think this book will truly benefit kids who are trying to learn how to read.
