Welcome to Sandra Bennett’s world of children’s books.
Make yourself comfortable and have a look around.
My stories are for the young and the young at heart. I like to write children’s adventures that the entire family will enjoy reading together.
Gingerbread Aliens is the first in a series of five planned short chapter books where I combine humour with action, surprises, adventure and a bit of science thrown into the mix. Imagination is the key that unlocks a whole world of learning to read, and it’s that ability to learn to read that establishes the building blocks to all other future learning. With that knowledge we can all grow and make our dreams come true.

The Australian National Eisteddfod selected Gingerbread Aliens for the children to use in their 2013 Championship Section of Speech and Drama Division for Ten years and under. The book was used in their reading from sight division for 10 and 12 year olds. It was a great honour to watch the children perform from exerts of my book.
