As part of the We Believe in Picture Books campaign honoring the importance of picture books, Candlewick Press has launched a yearlong video celebration of picture books at Reading Starts Here.
Candlewick will share 365 videos about picture books – a new one each day – from their authors, illustrators, staff, family, and friends.
The videos will be short, engaging, informal, and personal as each contributor shares what picture books mean to them, recommends favorite stories, and more.
They will be including videos featuring non-Candlewick books and authors (provided they can get the necessary permissions).
They are only doing active outreach to their own authors and illustrators, but they are "absolutely open to accepting videos from authors and illustrators from other houses."
Here is the first video celebrating their We Believe in Picture Books campaign:
