Our Story

 

 

 

 

 

Bertha Mahony Miller founded The Horn Book in 1924 to herald the best in children’s literature. Nearly one hundred years later, we are still following her lead. The Horn Book Magazine and The Horn Book Guide Online are among the most distinguished resources in the field of children’s and young adult literature and the core of our company.

Visit The Horn Book’s website often for uncommon insight and timely information. There you’ll find free e-newsletters (Notes from the Horn Book, Nonfiction Notes from the Horn Book, The Horn Book Herald, and Talks with Roger); a blog for just about every aspect of children’s literature (Calling Caldecott, Family Reading, Lolly’s Classroom, Out of the Box, and Read Roger); and other original web content.


Independent, opinionated, and stylish, The Horn Book Magazine has long been essential for everyone who cares about children’s and young adult literature. Our articles are lively, our reviews are insightful, our editorials are always sharp. We have gathered current and archival material to give you a taste of what we’ve been offering since 1924.
