Laura Alary (she/her/hers)

Laura Alary is a writer and storyteller who believes that stories can make us bigger on the inside. She has loved books from the time she could barely clamber up the steps to the book mobile that rolled into her neighbourhood once a week. After many years immersed in the academic study of bible and theology, Laura turned her attention to raising three creative and curious children, and writing books aimed at inviting all children to wonder, ask big questions, and be curious about the world. Laura’s books include the church year series Make Room, Look! and Breathe, Read, Wonder, Listen, What Grew in Larry’s Garden and most recently Sun in My Tummy and The Astronomer Who Questioned Everything: The Story of Maria Mitchell. Reading aloud is one of her favourite things! Learn more at
