I have always loved reading.  I have always loved children.  However, the perfect opportunity for me to spend time with both really happened after the birth of my first grandchild (Clemens), and it continues even stronger now that my second grandchild (Emmitt) has arrived. When I first started writing for Clemens, I called my little endeavors “Mimsy & Me.”  Now I have changed the title to “Mimsy & Us.”

Our illustrated books are written to captivate the imagination of young readers.  Our illustrator does a phenomenal job of providing visual imagery to help them fully experience the stories. We enjoy presenting our stories orally to young students.

We have written Children's Bible Stories, including coloring pages for one of our books, and even a coloring book as part of a set.  Take a look at our Bible Stories:

  • Mimsy's Bible Tales
  • Mimsy's Bible Tales Coloring Book
  • Mimsy's Tales of Giants, Lions, & Whales w/Coloring Pages
  • Who is Jesus? Student Edition
  • Who is Jesus? Teacher Edition

Currently we have five young stories fully illustrated and a coloring book that we read for schools:

  • Clemens Goes to the Moon
  • Captain Clemens and The Golden Treasure
  • Clemens, Rusty, & Tomato Juice
  • Jumping Jupiter w/Coloring Pages
  • Woody & Friends: Tale of the Soggy Sandwich
  • Woody & Friends Coloring Book

These books are all written on a second or third grade reading level. We also have a book written for fifth or sixth grade students explaining how to achieve blackbelt status in TaeKwonDo:

  • TaeKwonDo Brothers

If you would like to find out how to schedule an oral reading day with Dr. Odom, please contact us. We would be happy to discuss bringing stories to life for your students.

Our other children's books were written for Mimsy's grands and friends.  These books have graphics made from actual pictures of characters. We wanted to share with others who would like to have them.
