Ken Baker

I’m a children's book author of the picture books OLD MACDONALD HAD A DRAGON, COW CAN’T SLEEP, and BRAVE LITTLE MONSTER.

I love playing sports and going on adventures with my wife and children. I’ve spent many years coaching my children in different sports, including soccer, basketball, and baseball. In spite of my coaching, my children all still seem to like me for some reason.

I love chocolate and ice cream. I firmly believe they are the two most important food groups. Of course, to be considered ice cream it must have healthy chunks of chocolate or fudge. I often find myself educating people that ice cream with fruit in it is a salad and not a dessert, unless of course you transform it back to dessert status with heaps and heaps of hot fudge.

Growing up in the California Bay Area fueled my love for sandy beaches and the ocean, but now I prefer the tropical variety, which makes for even better bodysurfing and scuba diving. Lakes are great fun too, especially for boating, wakeboarding and windsurfing. I now live in Utah, which has introduced me to the joys of camping and hiking in the mountains. My favorite mountains are the kind with lots of trees. Snow in the mountains is good too, because that makes for great snowboarding and snowshoeing.

Of course, I love to read and write books. If you don’t love to read, you should. Reading is fun and makes you smart. If you don’t believe me, you need to meet my kids. They love to read and they know everything.
