Utah Children's Authors

Did you know that Utah has an unusually high number of children's authors and illustrators? Lucky us! Here are several of our favorites. All of the authors included lived in Utah at some point--one of them even did the artwork for our library cards. Any guesses? We couldn't possibly list every title by every author and illustrator, so be sure to look in our catalog for more works by those you enjoy. Hooray for creativity in Utah!

All Kinds of Award Winning Books

So many award stickers on these books! Newberys, Caldecotts, Sibert Medals, Pura Bel Pre Winners, Geisels and National Book Awards--you'll find a little bit of everything from picture books and easy readers to kid's non-fiction, middle grade, and graphic novels. And these are only a handful. Enjoy!
