Indeed they do!  A quick check of Barnes and Noble showed close to 800 of

They have this one as follows:

An understanding of the New Testament's original language
pays rich dividends to those who want more out of
the Bible. But few laypersons have a spare year or more
to learn Greek in a formal academic setting. In this study
guide, Macnair uses the same innovative, non-technical methods
that successfully jump-start today's "English as a
Second Language" learners.

So there you have it, complete with a sales pitch that all but assures the 
prospective purchaser that upon quick completion of this book he will be 
able to understand the GNT better that the Original Author!!

If my Greek were not already tainted so extensively with such an archaic and 
forgotten education, I would buy this book!  :-)  The info does not show its 
size, but I'll bet it is small enough not to intimidate little people 
[kids], and I hope it has good teaching cartoons.
