The author of seventeen children’s books, as well as three books for teachers and parents, Michael Sampson is the director of the Programs in Reading Education at Texas A&M University. With fellow literacy expert Bill Martin Jr, he coauthored the Candlewick titles Adam, Adam, What Do You See? and I Pledge Allegiance.
“I have a deep love for this country and the Pledge—I get goose bumps every time I recite it,” Michael Sampson says of I Pledge Allegiance. “This book makes the Pledge come alive for kids with language they can understand.”
Michael Sampson lives in Commerce, Texas.
