Jokes for GrandParents
(To Tell Their GrandKids)

Delightful. Entertaining. Funny. A light-hearted read for the whole family that you'll want to read again and again!

This book is a perfect fit for young children to talk and express themselves with adults and amongst themselves, so vital today when kids are too often consumed by video games, tablets, and cell phones. When a young child is made to feel important, admired, and significant in the midst of a family gathering or a one-on-one encounter with a loving adult, moments of spiritual upliftment are felt by the child and the adult. This is how self-esteem is built, by honoring the child.


Jokes For GrandParents (To Tell Their GrandKids)™ creates this scenario and can be a tool to strengthen family connections. What a wonderful gift this special book makes for parents and especially for grandparents. This book is a pleasure to read, color in, and discuss. You and your children will love it!

Jokes for Retirees And Seniors 
(That You May Not Want To Tell The  Boss)

Retirement is very much a “good news-bad news” event in one’s life. The “good news” is that you’re retiring - the “bad news” is that you’re retiring.

How the story of retirement unfolds depends on how each individual person looks at retirement. We at DOWNSIDE UP™ think retirement is a positive event because it is the beginning of a new chapter in one’s life that has yet to be written and YOU are the one writing the book, screenplay or narrative - whichever metaphor you prefer.

At DOWNSIDE UP ™ we believe that no matter what the lifetime event is, the glass is always full-- frankly, we don’t even know what an empty glass looks like! One reason for this view is the overwhelming importance of laughter. How one views life is very much a question of perception; and, humor and laughter can and do affect perception in a very positive way. This is in fact the reason why DOWNSIDE UP™ was formed as a publishing firm specializing in Joke Books.

(That You Definitely Want To Share With Your BFF)

A lighthearted, funny and sassy joke book for divorced gals and their best friends (BFFs).

Divorce is a difficult time that involves emotion, law and uncertainty. It can be a messy process. There is not much we can do about the law and uncertainty. However, things look different when you add humor to the equation. No matter how bad a situation may be, adding a touch of humor puts things in perspective and makes them seem more manageable.
