The Horn Book Magazine

As soon as our first issue appeared in 1924, The Horn Book Magazine established itself as the place where everyone who worked with children's books — writers, artists, editors, librarians, educators, and parents — came together to share their experiences and deepen their knowledge. Our archives overflow with treasures, including the letters, photographs, covers, notable articles, and engaging editorials gathered here. Also here are profiles of the seven remarkable women and men who have served as Editor of the Magazine.
