Surviving Parenthood

Sandra Boynton

by Mother of two

Another favorite author in my house is Sandra Boynton.  You may recognize some of her book such as “Barnyard Dance!”, “Pajama Time!”, and “Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs!” which are now also available as a box set.  All of her books are a fun read because they are rhymes, which is important because my son likes to make me read them over and over again at bedtime.

I read “Barnyard Dance!” like someone singing a line dancing song.  Little Lum normally sits on my lap when we read so I like to bounce him to the rhythm of the story as I read.  “Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs!” is also a good read because it teaches “opposites.” My Little Lum learned some words very quickly and was able to follow me during our bedtime reading sessions. We also have other titles that are just as
fun and silly, like “Moo Baa, La La La” and another whole series of books about a pig called “Little Pookie”.  Overall, all of Sandra Boynton’s books are fairly consistent and I would recommend them to any parent because I find them entertaining and easy to read.  My son loves it, and we have enjoyed our collection greatly!
