From the Editor – February 2014

roger right2 From the Editor – February 2014As we celebrate Black History Month, it’s wise to remember Dick Gregory’s quip: “Wouldn’t you know that when they got around to giving us a month, it would be the month of February, with all them days missing?” While a Month, or a Week, or a Day can serve to focus attention on something too often and too easily overlooked, it’s no substitute for an ongoing engagement with a topic that speaks to all of us, every day. I encourage the readers of Notes from the Horn Book to visit our “Talking About Race in Children’s Literature” webpage, a regularly updated source of commentary and recommendations for good books dealing with ethnic identity, history, and pride.
