She is Past President of IBBY Canada and the author of two picture books, What Will We Do with the Baby-o? (Tundra, 2004) and Hat On, Hat Off (Pajama Press, 2016).
Susan Corapi is an Assistant Professor, teaching literacy classes at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois.

Reading the World’s Stories: An Annotated Bibliography of International Youth Literature is undoubtedly a useful and well-intentioned guide to an international selection of books for young readers available from North American publishers. The editors have put in a great deal of work researching and highlighting titles from parts of the world about whose literature little may be known.
