From the Editor – March 2012

march2012cov 200x300 From the Editor   March 2012It’s a pretty easy bet that you are reading this issue of Notes from the Horn Book on some kind of screen. And in the current issue of The Horn Book Magazine, we look at all the different places that children’s books are likely to be read (or heard or watched . . .) in our multimedia world. Called “Books Remixed: Reading in the Digital Age,” this special issue includes articles about what makes a good picture book app, games based on children’s books, an interview with the director of the movie Holes, and much more, with a special comic-book appearance by Susan Meddaugh’s Martha, who tells just how she became a PBS star. You can find selected articles online and can order the entire issue by emailing hbmcustserv@cdsfulfillment.com or calling 877 523 6072.
