Candlewick Press is one of the leading publishers of children’s books since 1992. Candlewick began as a publisher of picture books for young children, but since then have grown to include a wide range of books for all ages: board books to e-books to fiction books for older readers.


I was given the opportunity to review two of Candlewick’s books about love, right on time for Valentine’s Day.

Huggy Kissy by Leslie Patricelli is an adorable board book recommended for ages 1-3 with bright, simple illustrations sure to delight any young “reader”. This book follows a baby as he delights in all the kisses and hugs he receives all day, from his parents kissing his feet and tummy to his grandma’s lipstick-covered kisses. I love the simple language used. With just a few words on each page, the book keeps the focus on the most important part to a baby or toddler: the pictures.

Visit Candlewick’s website, where you can download the most current catalog of books, learn more about the company, and read about the authors and illustrators behind the books.
