Week of October 23—What We Can Learn from Horn Book Reviews

Quotes of the week:

Learning is what most adults will do for a living in the 21st century.

The illiterate of the future are not those you cannot read or write. They are those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.
—Alvin Toffler

The Horn Book Magazine is considered by many as the “bible” of children’s literature. Published bi-monthly since 1924, each issue features articles, reviews, and features about current happenings in children’s literature, while also providing a historical perspective. The Horn Book Guide to Children’s Young Adult Books is released semi-annually and features reviews of hard-cover releases from the previous six months. This week on Picture This! we’ll examine some of the latest reviews from the The Horn Book Guide to Children’s Young Adult Books and see what we can discover that can impact our writing.
