About Kimberly Orchard

Kimberly Orchard

Hi! I'm Kim, a children's book writer.

I wrote my first children's book while working at a daycare in Toronto. It was there that I realized my master’s in early childhood studies did NOT prepare me to work with a pack of hungry 2-year-olds. Luckily, I discovered picture books. The combination of story + art worked like magic. I began to rely on picture books to calm these children down. I read them on repeat. I fell asleep to their beat in my head. I thought it would be fun to write my own stories, and guess what - it was!
