Many authors and illustrators have touched our minds and hearts. One way to celebrate them is to introduce or revisit their contributions on their birthdays.

This list will remind you of authors you already love and, ideally, introduce you to a few you haven’t encountered yet. You’ll find titles to interest all ages. Check them out from your local or school library or click the Amazon links. (Chapter Book=C, Early Chapter Book=EC, Picture Book=P, Nonfiction=NF)
