To celebrate our twenty-fifth anniversary and our commitment to creating and nurturing lifelong readers, Candlewick Press is launching My First Book Club. This exciting new venture will showcase handpicked titles ideal for early readers alongside custom resources to help deepen children’s engagement with the books.

“At Candlewick Press, we know that a lifelong love of reading begins when a young reader finds a story that he or she truly loves,” says Karen Lotz, president and publisher of Candlewick Press and managing director of the Walker Books Group. “That’s why we are so proud to introduce My First Book Club, where we’ll showcase our wide variety of early chapter books, each written and illustrated with great care and flair by the best talents working today, for new readers to enjoy. It all begins with My First Book Club!”
