More About Robin Jones Gunn & Christina Diane Schofield
When Robin Jones Gunn was in first grade her teacher wrote on her report card, “Robin keeps the entire class entertained at rug time with her stories.”
Even with such an early affirmation, Robin didn’t seriously consider becoming a writer during high school or college. She was more intrigued by the idea of traveling to foreign lands and telling people about God’s love.
But Robin’s husband also noticed her gift for story-telling and urged her to attend a writers’ conference. That first conference opened the door for publication of devotions, articles, interviews and eventually 15 children’s books.
While on a camping trip with their church youth group, Robin grew concerned when she saw what the girls were reading in their tent. The 13 year-old girls challenged her, saying, “If you don’t want us to read these books then you should write novels for us. We’ll even tell you what to write. How hard could that be?”
Early Mornings in Robin’s Nest
For over two years Robin carved out time to write by getting up at 3am, three days a week. Each week she would read the finished pages to the girls in the youth group and they would send her home to write and rewrite some more. After ten rejections Robin’s first novel was accepted for publication and released in 1988. More books followed and soon the Christy Miller series was joined by the Sierra Jensen series, the College Years and the Katie Weldon series. Thousands of readers have contacted Robin over the years to let her know how these stories changed their life.
Robin continued exploring other avenues of storytelling with gentle romances in the Glenbrooke series, women’s friendships in the Sisterchicks® series and family relationships in five women’s novels and two Father Christmas novellas.
Stories Travel the Globe
Over the past 25 years Robin has written 82 books with almost 4.5 million copies sold worldwide. To her great delight, Robin’s books are doing exactly what she always hoped to do – they are traveling around the world and telling people about God’s love. She is doing the same. Over the past ten years Robin has been invited to speak at events around the US and Canada as well as in South America, Africa, Europe and Australia.
Robin and her husband have two grown children and have been married for 35 years. They live in Hawai’i where she continues to write and speak in rhythm with her life verse:
“But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the LORD Jesus – the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.” Acts 20:24.
Robin Jones Gunn currently resides in Portland, in the state of Oregon. Robin Jones Gunn was born in 1955.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mrs Rosey Posey & The Baby Bird (I Can Read 2!)?
A good story for kids about how God cares for all living creatures Sep 24, 2009
Mrs. Rosey Posey and the Baby Bird, written by prolific author Robin Jones Gunn, is a story that illustrates how God watches over all living creatures, even baby birds.
When Rachel discovers a baby bird has fallen out of its nest, she runs and gets Mrs. Rosey Posey, an adult in the neighborhood all the children love and trust. Mrs. Rosey Posey knows just what to do. She takes the bird in her house and makes a nest for it. Rachel tells Mrs. Rosey Posey, "I'm glad I found the bird. No one else saw it."
Mrs. Rosey Posey looks at her with a twinkle in her eyes and replies, "There is someone who saw it."
"Was it you?" Rachel asks.
"No," says Mrs. Rosey Posey, "It is someone who lives here. This someone cares about every living thing."
Throughout the week, as Mrs. Rosey Posey feeds the bird and cares for it, the children try to guess who the "someone" is. But Mrs. Rosey Posey won't tell them. She just keeps on giving hints. When the bird is finally ready to take off on its own, the children are finally able to guess who the "someone" is. Mrs. Rosey Posey tells them that God knows everything and he cares for us all, even the birds.
The Bible verse, Luke 12: 6-7, is cited as a reference for this story: "Aren't five sparrows sold for two pennies? But God does not forget even one of them. In fact, he even counts every hair on your head! So don't be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows."
The bright, colorful, kid-friendly illustrations, by Christina Schofield, enhance the text and the story.
What I Like: I like the delightful illustrations; I think children of all ages will like them, too. I also like having stories for young readers that illustrate truths of the Bible.
What I Dislike: Although the Bible lesson is a good one, children might think it's okay to pick up and bring stray wild animals home. It requires special knowledge and skills to care for wild animals and not many people are qualified for the job.
Overall Rating: Very good.
