31 Authors Children Love

This October I’m going to share 31 of our favorite children’s authors, from A to Z. (Aesop to Zion) I’ll share some favorite examples of their work, a little information about their books or who they are, ideas for using their books in your family or homeschool, and I even have a few special “guest” interviews planned. (OK, the special guests are my children. But I think they’re pretty special and I hope you’ll appreciate the kid’s eye view.)

This will be the index page and I’ll add each day’s new author throughout the month. I hope you’ll come back and see who we’ve chosen. I know some are familiar favorites, but you might be surprised by a few, or meet a new to you author to introduce to your own children.

(Just so you don’t miss anything, let me suggest that you turn off any “pop up” blocker you have enabled on your browser. I promise not to have anything “pop up” on my posts, but those blockers do interfere and they can make posts look strange.)
