Susan Robinson believes reading is the key that opens the door to unlimited worlds of wonder. Her books help children navigate the world around them and imagine new possibilities, while her focus on language teaches vocabulary and instills a love of the sound of words. A former teacher, school librarian, and university writing instructor, Susan uses books to teach critical and creative thinking and guide children to write their own stories.

Don't Just Read Aloud--Trigger Your Child's Creative Thinking
Being an author allows Susan Robinson to share her passions--reading, writing, and teaching--with thousands of children. Hands-on activities in the arts and sciences help her extend each story's message and relevance. She loves the "aha" moment when a child identifies with a character, gets a pun, or bursts with a new story idea. And she lives for the moment children take up pencils or keyboards to build their own imaginary worlds.
