Author Biography

Sandy Sprott loves introducing her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to children and teaching adults to do the same.
Her passion for ministering to children was birthed in Susie Cole's three-year-old Sunday School class where Sandy was allowed to remain with her daughter. Sandy was tutored by a master and soon found children to be her 'field ripe unto harvest'.
After relocating with her family, Sandy became the traveling 'Story Lady' at her new church, teaching the same story in 4 different pre-K classes, each story appropriate to that age's ability to learn.
In the same time period of the mid 70s to late 80s, she held a Bible Club in her home for the K-6 graders, reaching around 50 kids every Tuesday afternoon 11 months out of the year for 13 years. The children were excited to learn the Bible and experience the love of Jesus Christ.
Sandy's ministry expanded to teaching other adults to have their own Neighborhood Bible Club Ministry or to become a more effective children's evangelist in their own church. She has taught at the invitations of Children's Pastor Conferences, Churches, Sunday School conventions, Campus Crusade For Christ and other over seas ministries.
Cancer in '04 took Sandy away from her ministry, and she is now writing and illustrating the award winning 15 book series of Christ centered Little Kicker Books.™
Sandy's delight is to write and illustrate books that teach children profound Scriptural truths with fun and simplicity.

Reviewed by Kristie Ingerto for Readers' Favorite

Sandy Sprott’s Little Kicker series begins with “A Prayer for Little Kicker.” Mother and Daddy Donkey have a baby donkey named Little Kicker. They love Little Kicker and they also love God and they want Little Kicker to love God and do great things in his life. Mother and Daddy decide to invite all of their friends for a special day of prayer for Little Kicker. Their friends arrive and circle around Little Kicker and pray for him and bless his life.

This book would be an excellent gift for new parents as they begin their lives caring for a baby. “A Prayer For Little Kicker” has such positive messages throughout the book. Mother and Daddy Donkey love Little Kicker and it is their responsibility to raise him; however, they know that they are not alone or that they can raise him without the love and support of others. The Donkeys show their faith in God and love for both Him and Little Kicker by having a day dedicated to praying for Little Kicker. By including their friends they are making their desire clear to others and are asking for support throughout Little Kicker’s life just as parents need others’ support and guidance while raising children. Most of all they need to be looking to God and asking for His blessings along the way. Children will love Little Kicker and the animal friends in this book. Some of the other animals are described in detail at the end of the book to educate children about them. The illustrations throughout this book are beautiful and there are so many details in the pictures. I love the map that is included of the land and the animals’ habitats. There are also activities included making this book interactive to use with children.
