About the Author

Sandra Boynton is a beloved American cartoonist, children’s author, songwriter, and highly sporadic short film director. Boynton has written and illustrated sixty children’s books and seven general audience books, including five New York Times bestsellers. More than 70 million of her books have been sold—“mostly to friends and family,” she says. Boynton has also written and produced six albums of unconventional children’s music; three of her albums have been certified Gold (over 500,000 copies sold), and Philadelphia Chickens, nominated for a Grammy, has gone Platinum (over one million copies sold). Boynton has also written and directed eleven short musical films and two animated shorts, including “Tyrannosaurus Funk,” sung by Samuel L.

In 2008, Boynton received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Cartoonists Society. Boynton has four perfect children and an equally perfect granddaughter. Her Connecticut studio is in a converted barn that has perhaps the only hippopotamus weathervane in America.

Stephanyk on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book is appropriate for pre-k and kindergarten students because the letters are big with different colors and are paired with fun animal pictures. Each letter is paired with an animal and an adjective. For example H is for hippopotamus and hungry. - I could use the book to teach the alphabet as well as feelings to the students. - Each day I would work with one or two letters and have children write the letter and draw a picture of an animal. When we finish all the letters I would make their work into a book for them to take home. I would help the children write the animals name and the adjective. Each day I would have different materials for the children to use (stencils, paint, crayons, markers).
