31 Authors Children Love: Sandra Boynton

Sandra Boynton has written many board books. But that’s not all: she’s also written some of our favorite songs. (yes, it’s true)

Our favorite, the one we’ve worn out and had to buy new again:

This was the first board book that our oldest daughters memorized. They could “read” the book long before they knew all their letters.

One of our favorite Sandra Boynton song collections is:

You can hear one of my children singing the song, “Copycat” at least once a week.

  1. Moo Baa La La La is definitely top of the list. Fun, easy, and makes little ones believe they are ‘reading’. It’s been replaced twice so far. We love Sandra Boyton in our home too!

    • Blue Hat, Green Hat is another great one for letting kids think they’re “reading”. It’s predictable right up to the end. Boynton sure does get a lot of humor out of relatively simple illustrations.
