"Smiles have the power to make others happy."

Learn and Grow with the Happy Magic children's book!


School Bus Gus teaches self-worth and pride through the story of a lovable school bus on a field-trip. It’s a fun and educational story by D.J Markuson with wonderful illustrations by artist, Jordan Sullivan.

Gus's best friend, the bus driver man, and the downtown metro bus, teach Gus that everyone has purpose and each person brings value to the world.


Gus’s Goal:

Gus shows children that we all have special talents others may not, and we can use those abilities working together, helping one another in harmony.
