Kim Bellefontaine grew up in a military family and had the opportunity to live and study across Canada and Europe. She graduated from Ottawa’s Algonquin College as a Museum Technologist and worked in that field in both Germany and Canada. During that period she found that her interest lay in children’s education and worked on education programs within museums. Her first book, ABC of Canada, is an introduction to our country at the primary level. Kim teamed with a friend who was a known children’s book illustrator for her three published works. #Kim is currently living in Kingston, Ontario, with her two children, Emily and Ben. She is presently expanding her education at St. Lawrence College, but is always looking for and working on new projects.
