Canadian Children’s Books Authors
Robert Munsch is Canadian. While he didn’t start out that way, he is a Canadian citizen. His books are so fun to read. They’re the books that get stuck in your head because you had so fun reading them.
Another great author is Marie-Louise Gay from Quebec. You probably recognize her books even if you don’t recognize her name: Stella & Sam, Caramba, and many more.
