Ok, I’ve talked a bit about this on both Facebook and Instagram this week, but I wanted to elaborate a bit on the Amazing Alabama digital downloads that are now available.

So, go ahead and print out those county pages from Amazing Alabama, you rule-breaker, you!


I’m serious when I say that the #1 question I get asked when I visit classrooms is “Can I make copies of [this] page for my entire class?” OFFICIALLY the answer is no - you can’t make copies (for distribution) of a book due to copyright laws (and other things that are above my pay-grade).

But since I DID get the question so frequently and my publisher was also regularly asked the SAME question, we decided to put our heads together and come up with a solution that worked for everyone - the author (me), the publisher, and the teacher. 

I KNOW you’re going to jump for joy when you hear what I’m about to tell you!


Now you can download a digital copy of any county page and print it out as many times as you need! Each of these drawings is perfectly sized to print out on letter (8.5x11) paper. And there’s an added bonus - for every county page you purchase, I will throw in the cover page for free!

That’s 2 coloring pages for the price of one!

  • Got 20 kids in your 4th grade class? No problem!

  • Want to print out your county page for a special workshop in your media center? OK

  • Do you need a weekend activity for your library’s children’s area? Sure thing!


I envision 4th grade teachers around the state utilizing these printable coloring pages in their Alabama history lessons.

Here’s a fun idea of how to use this new resource: Are you talking in your classroom about the counties where our Alabama state capitals have been? You might want to print out Washington, Dallas, Madison, Tuscaloosa, and Montgomery Counties. 


Can you tell I’m a bit excited about this? 

And AS ALWAYS, please click the button below to follow me on Instagram (if you don’t already). It’s the best way to see what I’m doing on a daily basis.

Oh, and also - I’m going to try and put out a blog post every Friday. Let’s see how that plan works.

Stay tuned…
