From the Author

About Ryan Rector

Ryan is a third grader in the greater Los Angeles area that has big dreams of being a singer. Yes, she knows that there are a lot of people that want to be singers and that it is really hard. But, she thinks that she has the pipes to do it. She learned from her dad that Pipes is your voice box which is called a larynx. That is a funny word, larynx.

So, since she wants to be a singer, you're probably asking why she is writing books with her dad. Well, it's super fun. Writing books is just like writing songs. You have to think of a title, a beginning, a middle, and an ending. So, she figures all of this book writing will help her singing career. What do you think? 

She hopes that you enjoy their books and keep your ears out for her singing.


About Clarence Rector

Clarence is a son, husband, and father. This joint venture to write books with his little girl, Ryan, is one of his greatest joys and accomplishments in life.
 
Clarence has primarily served in a management role throughout his career in the staffing, media, publication, and healthcare industries. Currently, he is a practicing Speech-Language Pathologist in the Greater Los Angeles Area. One of the perks of his current job is that he gets to "test" out all of their book ideas on the children that receive therapy from him. That's called a double win.

I recently purchased this book for my goddaughter. I really enjoyed how they incorporated Goldilocks into the storyline. The book was very entertaining. I plan on purchasing more to donate to our children's ministry at church.

This book is very well written for preschoolers and early readers. What made it fabulous is that the writer is only in Grade 3. Well done. The story s funny and engaging. The book is also beautifully illustrated full page. Highly recommended.

My 6 year old daughter loved this book. It was wonderfully illustrated and well written. The story was cute and funny. My daughter laughed out loud while reading it! If you have young children this is a great book to get for them!

Kudos to this father/daughter writing team, and to the illustrator, for this fun, humorous story.

P.J. loves animals, so he's pretty excited when his dad announces they're taking a trip to the zoo. When P.J. finally arrives, however, he's dismayed to find the first animals they visit--the bears--are all asleep. According to the zookeeper, these bears have a reason for sleeping that is not based on natural nocturnal patterns--instead their reason is rooted in a familiar fairy tale. Soon P.J. discovers that this situation has affected the whole zoo! As P.J. and his dad go from cage to cage, they meet all sorts of snoozing animals and question various zookeepers.

This story makes good use of repetition, which is often fun for young readers. They know what's coming next and can chime in. The pictures work to enhance the story, adding a whole host of unspoken elements (and a few word bubbles that made me chuckle). I really enjoyed looking at the art and young readers will find much to discover hidden amongst the sleeping animals. Enjoyable!

PJ loves animals--so he is excited to go to the zoo. They visit the three bears first--who are all sleeping. In fact, every place they go, the animals are sleeping, and the explanations for why they sleep today, gets more and more complicated. Good thing zoos are open more than one day!

Illustrations: Lovely illustrations with little humorous details that really add the story (look for the signs from the animals asking them to be left alone to sleep). Enthusiastic 5 stars!

Storyline: I won't spoil the surprise, but the reason all the animals are tired has to do with a blonde and a bowl of porridge. This story makes an adorable connection to a well-known fairy tale, and it was very enjoyable to read aloud. Well done! 5 stars
