Introducing Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

NonfictionNotesLogo5 550x143 Introducing Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book

This afternoon, the inaugural issue of our new quarterly e-newsletter Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book went out to subscribers of our long-running monthly newsletter Notes from the Horn Book.

Each issue will offer Horn Book Guide reviews of recommended informational books, grouped by subject, that we believe will be useful for schools adhering to — and engaging with — the Common Core State Standards. Discussing the problematic disconnect between libraries, publishers, and classrooms in his article “Common Ground” (featured in this issue), Marc Aronson sums up our goal: “Look to Nonfiction Notes to help bridge that gap by providing concrete suggestions of high-quality, useful books that are also enjoyable, eye-opening, and mind-broadening.” Happy reading!
