If you are a Sandra Boynton fan, you probably recognized the name in the title above and knew instantly what this post was going to be about.  Little Pookie is probably this household's current favorite character in children's picture books...at least one of the top three....

Somehow, I missed out on Sandra Boynton for my first two children.  I was blessed with a gift at a baby shower for my third child with my first:  The Going To Bed Book....  from there, we were hooked!


Our first Pookie book was What's Wrong Little Pookie?


This was followed quickly by Night Night Little Pookie, Let's Dance Little Pookie, and Happy Birthday Little Pookie.

We LOVE Little Pookie!!!!!!

Sandra Boynton has written over 50 books for children and adults! Her books for children have had tens of millions of copies in print. I just recently learned she has also written over 4,000 greeting cards and 5 music albums. (I ordered the latest for a Christmas present!) It is easy to see how she is called one of America's best-loved artists!

Reading is the most essential skill for success in school and society.  A child who fails to learn to read will most likely fail to reach his or her full potential.  ~By Karina Richland, M.A., E.T.

Indeed, reading is essential...so why not start your child's love of reading with the wonderfully animated characters of books by Sandra Boynton?  They are sure to bring smiles and giggles that will bring a love of story time to you and your child's heart.


If you haven't read a book by Sandra Boynton, I suggest you run (well, okay, you can drive) to your nearest book store or library today!! And if you have, well go read another...  🙂
