Candlewick Press and the Common Core

With a focus on critical and independent thinking, the Common Core State Standards require close and thoughtful reading of both fiction and nonfiction. As an independent publisher, Candlewick Press creates some of the finest literature available to children. Both our fiction and nonfiction books offer rich themes and strong characters with varying points of view, making for a perfect connection to the Common Core.
