The Horn Book now has a new monthly e-newsletter called Notes from the Horn Book. You can sign up to receive it, or read it online. Cool stuff.
I was in the bookstore today and almost picked up a brand new March/April copy of the Horn Book, but I thought better of it once I found out the price. Instead, I decided to subscribe, since I buy it all the time anyway. It's such a great magazine, the savings if you buy an annual subscription savings is substantial over newsstand.
This issue, the main story is called "What Makes a Good Alphabet Book? Let’s Start at the Very Beginning" by Lolly Robinson. You can read it here.
