Rob Sanders

Rob Sanders is a writer who teaches and a teacher who writes. Every day he waltzes to Mintz Elementary School in Brandon, Florida, to teach kids about books and words and reading and writing. Then he boogie-woogies back home to write books for children. On weekends and holidays you might find him boot-scooting with his dog, Baxter; hokey-pokeying at the beach with his great-nieces and -nephews; or cha-chaing with other children's writers. Nothing makes his heart dance more than hearing boys and girls say, "Read it again!"
