The Horn Book’s Family Reading landing page

We are excited to debut our shiny new Family Reading landing page, a one-stop spot to easily access this blog as well as handy links to Horn Book content of particular interest to families (however we define the term).

From this page, you can browse Books in the Home tagged articles and posts, themed booklists and book awards, and thoughtful interviews with children’s book creators. Keep Making a Difference with frequently updated links to activism- and social justice–related articles, booklists, and posts.

But wait! There’s more! This landing page brings you to the Horn Book’s other blogs (Read Roger, Out of the Box, Calling Caldecott, and Lolly’s Classroom)–you’re welcome to join in the lively conversations and commentary. Subscribe to our free e-newsletters, perfect for anyone looking for good new books for children and teenagers. Sample content from A Family of Readers by Horn Book editors Roger Sutton and Martha V. Parravano, which the Boston Globe called “a godsend.”

Check it out and be sure to bookmark the page for quick reference.
