Please read Martha’s interview with K.T. Horning about the CCBC‘s fabled accounting of diversity in children’s books. I wonder what those numbers would look like from here, that is, if you counted the same variables for those books reviewed by the Horn Book Guide, would you get the same kind of numbers? I don’t think CCBC is seeing the same volume of series nonfiction we are; on the other hand, they include some paperbacks and small presses we don’t review. Not that I expect the numbers to be wildly divergent–equally dismal in both cases–but it would be valuable to know just where the diverse books are coming from. K.T., if you’re there, any thoughts?
