Tiny but tough

Happy birthday, Barbara Bader. NINETY, wow. In your honor we have rounded up some of your greatest hits. Like other old people, I frequently find myself wanting to tell the young to know your history, and the Horn Book is proud to have for so long published one of children’s librarianship and children’s literature’s ablest and smartest historians. Thank you!

  1. I THOUGHT, “How can I possibly afford $45.00 for a book?” The title: AMERICAN PICTURE BOOKS FROM NOAH’S ARK TO THE BEAST WITHIN (Macmillan 1976) by Barbara Bader. Well, I could skip lunches and/or dinners for a few days. It was (is) worth every penny of its 615 pages. I probably lost a few pounds carrying the book from a bookstore to the train station!
