From the Editor - January 2022

These works of fiction and nonfiction — all centering Black lives and reflecting a variety of perspectives and lived experiences — are excellent choices for Black History Month (and all year long!), to “augment and enrich the image libraries people carry in their hearts” per Christopher Myers in “Young Dreamers.”...

Editorial: The Best Job in the World (January/February 2022)

Back in 1996, when I accepted the position of editor in chief at the Horn Book, I told my new boss Duncan Todd that I would stay for five years. Ha! It’s been more than twenty-five years since then, and it’s time for someone else to have a go. By...

From the Editor - November 2021

“I’m not sure that I know how to write for adults or how to write for children, or if there is a big difference. So when I write, I write for readers,” says Thomas King in this issue's Five Questions interview, and God bless him. We have all read books...

Editorial: It's Time to Light the Lights (November/December 2021)

Hanukkah starts early this year — November 28 — so I hope that leaves you enough time (supply chain problems notwithstanding) to benefit from our annual Holiday High Notes recommendations.

See our list of great books that acknowledge this momentous occasion and the power of the school...

Editorial: Barbara Bader 1927–2021 (September/October 2021)

I was very sorry to learn from her daughter about the death of longtime Horn Book contributor Barbara Bader, who passed away on July 11th in Seattle, just a week before what would have been her ninety-fourth birthday. When I began at the Horn Book in 1996, the Magazine had...

From the Editor - August 2021

Notwithstanding COVID-19 and its restrictions, I hope all kids this year will still get some semblance of a First Day of School. They all deserve it. Hell, we all deserve it, a day for reset, reinvention, renewal. (And anxiety, of course, but that seems like everybody’s default setting already anyway.)...

From the Editor - July 2021

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and finding enough to read (we can help). That’s it; go forth and read. From the July 2021 issue of Notes from the Horn Book....
