From the Editor - June 2024

I know I said May was my favorite month, but hello June! Earlier this week The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art announced its 2024 Carle Honors Honorees — and, thrillingly, the Horn Book is among them, as MENTOR. Read the press release here; and, yes, we’re still pinching ourselves. Last week we announced our own Boston Globe–Horn Book Award winners, including a rare Special Citation. And this weekend brings ALA Annual in San Diego — stop by booth 1638 to pick up free magazines, wish us a happy hundredth birthday, and kvell with me!

From the June 2024 issue of Notes from the Horn Book.
