Local author Jody Elwell Griffin (Grandma Bear), with illustrator Elizabeth Smith, enjoyed the reading and book signing as much as the many children and adults that were there to cheer them on.

Jody Elwell Griffin, who has lived her whole life on the same ranch in the Greenhorn Valley, wrote a most intriguing book that is very unusual and delightful.

Griffin has been a 4-H leader and Rye Elementary School teacher, doing both with true, heartfelt, love and warmth for over 40 years. She says that she has retired, but she can still be seen, more than occasionally, substituting at and visiting the schools and she canít quite miss a 4-H get together either. Jody is also very active in the Rye Home United Methodist Church.

There was a great turn-out for her first book-signing and reading on Saturday, March 23, at the Rye Home Methodist Church, which also happened to be her 77th birthday. She had been scheduled to have a book signing at the Rye Elementary School on the Thursday before but that was canceled because of the storm warnings that closed many of the Pueblo County Schools.

Watching and listening to her reading the story to the children was a treat! They sat around her all wide-eyed and anxious, while wondering what Grandma Bear was going to do next and what a funny surprise for all as they saw the picture of her walking away from painting the bathroom green.
