About We Believe in Picture Books
Picture books — lovingly and collaboratively produced — go to the heart of who Candlewick Press is as a company, and we remain as committed to creating the best possible picture books today as we were when we first started, twenty years ago. To coincide with our twentieth anniversary, Candlewick launched the We Believe in Picture Books initiative, celebrating in 2012 and beyond. 

As part of the We Believe in Picture Books campaign honoring the importance of picture books, Candlewick launched a yearlong video celebration of picture books at in August 2012.

Candlewick is sharing 365 videos about picture books – a new one each day – from our authors, illustrators, staff, family, and friends. The videos are short, engaging, informal, and personal as each contributor shares what picture books mean to them, recommends favorite stories, and more. We invite you to visit for more information, and to celebrate picture books with Candlewick every day of the year.
