Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC! We can't get enough Sandra Boynton in our house. The four books in this collection are all fun reads, with great stories, great rhymes and rhythm. So glad to have got the set. My favorite is the "But not the Hippopotamus", but they are all great; and any clever book about bed time is a good find.

Rated out of 5 by from I love Boynton books for my little one; however she didn't love this set. She liked Opposites at first, but lost interest soon after. We also have Moo, Baa, La La La! and The Belly Button Book which she loves ever since she was about 8 months old. I plan to try these books with her again when she is a little older.

About the Author

Sandra Boynton was born in Orange, New Jersey, and grew up in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Boynton's parents became Quakers when she was two years old.

She went on to Yale, entering in 1970 for her second year of college. She spent the second semester of her junior year studying in Paris through Wesleyan University's program. At Yale, she majored in English. Boynton intended to become a theater director.

With the birth of her first child in 1979, Boynton postponed indefinitely a career in the theater. Boynton began designing greeting cards for Recycled Paper Greetings. Her designs were at the forefront of the Alternative Cards commercial movement that began in the mid-1970s. According to RPG co-founder and president Mike Keiser, over 200 million copies of Boynton's distinctive humorous cards featuring an assortment of unnamed cartoon animal characters, spare layout, and droll messages sold between 1973 and 1995.
