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 Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

Little Kicker is not a very happy donkey because he has to get his donkey shots, and he is scared. Tony the Pony chimes in and starts telling Little Kicker all about shots. That did not help very much, because Little Kicker did not want a needle stuck in his hide with medicine going through it. As Little Kicker almost gets to the doctor, he prays and asks God to help the shots not to hurt very much. And just as he goes into the barn, Becky the Bunny runs in with her two big ears stuffed into her little fireman’s hat, which makes Little Kicker laugh. And laugh!

I love this book that talks about first shots that all kids will have to endure. I love that the author, Sandy Sprott, used farm animals, and especially a little donkey, to teach children that shots are not that bad. And Little Kicker teaches kids three things that will help when the time comes for those dreaded shots. You will learn all about these three things and more when you read “Little Kicker Visits Doctor Quickwell”, or have someone read this story to you. In the back of the book, the author has included several activities, including things a child can think about when getting a shot, a Laughing Shot Award and other things that children will enjoy doing. I think this is an exceptional book for you to read to your child before he or she goes in for those dreaded shots that are always so difficult for both the parent and the child. I highly recommend “Little Kicker Visits Doctor Quickwell” by Sandy Sprott for your child’s library. It would also be an amazing book for a classroom or school library.
