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.

I have not had a family yet that hasn’t loved sharing and reading “Gingerbread Aliens.”

When I have completed readings in schools I have found even the most reluctant readers begging me to continue or asking me further questions after the bell has rung. Hands desperately reaching high in the air seeking my attention as children want more of the story.

I have been told of boys who usually will never read at bedtime refusing to put the book down and turn out their light. “Just one more chapter…please!” is a common comlpaint.

 

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.

As a classroom teacher of 25 years experience and a mother of 3, I guarantee your child will love “Gingerbread Aliens” and the subsequent books in the Bradberrie Brothers Alien Adventure.

    This was a really good children’s book, the children loved it, and would really love to buy some more of these books for the children. It was a very refreshing book in comparison of the other children’s books. A definite must buy

 

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.
