Started in 1973 by a small group of women in Toronto who wanted to produce books for Canadian children, the mandate broadened within a few years and Kids Can Press was creating books for kids around the world. More than three decades later, and with a long list of award-winning titles, Kids Can Press has become a favourite among parents, teachers, librarians and kids worldwide.

Kids Can Press has published in partnership with more Canadian public institutions than any other children’s publisher. Partners include: the Royal Ontario Museum, the Ontario Science Centre, the Federation of Ontario Naturalists, the National Museum, the Museum of Nature, World Wildlife and the National Hockey League.

Kids Can Press books have received critical acclaim and numerous nominations and awards. Some highlights include:

Today, Kids Can Press continues to be in the forefront of children’s publishing by creating books that raise kids’ social consciousness with the CitizenKid series. The series features Mimi's Village, If The World Were a Village, Tree of Life, One Well, Ryan and Jimmy, and One Hen, which help children and their families to understand complex global issues and demonstrate how every one of us, young or old, has the power to make a difference.[7]
