The Children’s Book Review | March 11, 2019

Sandra Magsamen’s children’s books are as familiar as they are timeless. With dozens of titles and millions of copies sold, parents around the world have enjoyed reading Magsamen’s colorful and heart-warming board books to their children. Filled with simplistic illustrations and bold, beautiful colors, these board books are perfect to catch the attention of even the smallest children.

Each book features Magsamen’s stylized and illustrated words (think of the word “Sunshine” written in bubble rainbow writing, or “diddle diddle” written in patterned bubble letters). Even older children who are learning to read will find these books a delight to try, with the fun fonts and rhymes making the stories quick to master and easy to enjoy.
