Reading Starts Here

Square Mikey Meme“Picture books live on, in the physical world and in our psyche, ever ready to be performed again. And that is a joyful thing.”



I rediscovered a website that is all about picture books. I’m enjoying my short visits there. In 2012, and 2013, Candlewick Press put up the website “Reading Starts Here.” It contains 365 very short videos related to specific picture books. Some videos are of editors or other staff members at Candlewick. Many are by school teachers and librarians. Some are videos of parents and/or kids reading their favorite picture books aloud.

But all videos on “Reading Starts Here” are about picture books and their impact on people—both big and small.

Drop in and keep clicking. I’m sure you’ll find inspiration for new picture books and maybe ideas for trailers for your current books.

Have fun!
