Current Team

Since its creation in 2008, Kids' Books Bolivia has had over 40 student writers, who have collaborated with a number of illustrators, as well as creative advisors, editors, translators, and many supporters locally and abroad - who have each contributed to the spirit of this project.

Kids' Books Bolivia has also built relationships with many institutions and organizations throughout the research and publication of each book, as well as through their distribution, and the overall growth of the project. We are deeply grateful for this extensive network.
