" Canadian children’s book publishers have a reputation for doing things differently. Orca Book Publishers and Second Story Press publish books that address topics that can seem complex and difficult for kids to discuss.
Orca Book Publishers nonfiction series (Footprints, Origins) and standalone titles encourage young readers to become better citizens in a confusing world. The authors write about important (and controversial) subjects with passion, purpose and sensitivity.
Second Story Press publishes feminist fiction and nonfiction for children. The press has gained a name for publishing award-winning children’s book about the Holocaust and #OwnVoices, with a push to publish Indigenous writers."
