Children's Author Spotlight: Sandra Boynton

If number of books by the same author is the benchmark, then Sandra Boynton is clearly the favourite author around here. She's a prolific writer of children's stories. Her subjects are adorable and silly animals such as pigs, cows, turkeys, cats, dogs, and her flagship hippos. There may also be the occasional monsters or dinosaur.

If you want a taste of Boynton's sense of humour, just visit the sandraboynton.com home and introduction pages. The silly doesn't stop at the text of the story itself. It's all the little details that make the difference in Boynton's work.

Often the stories are accompanied by, or may even have been born out of, a silly song.

To view the full Spotlight on Sandra Boynton, please visit Cookie's Book Club.

  1. That is one of the things I miss about my daughter being younger, reading books with her. Now we read together, but separate books (she's nearly 16), but it's still nice.

    I'm following from voiceBoks on my way to your book club!

  3. Thanks for visiting ladies! I love reading with my little guy and these books are so fun. He's almost outgrown them now (sniff), but that just means we move on to other great books!

  7. I guess ours would have to be Robert Munsch cuz my boys just love his stories. They always laugh out loud when we read them.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog for the hop. I'm returning the follow. Hope you're having a great week so far.
