ARIZONA

Currently, we do not have a native-born Arizona children’s book author. If you were born in Arizona and have published a children’s book, please let us know.

That being said, we cannot overlook the great Barbara Park (1947-2013) who was born in New Jersey but lived and died in Arizona. She published her first Junie B. Jones book in 1992.
