Sample text

Older children can explore fat volumes with hundreds of rhymes, including additional, often omitted verses for well-known rhymes. Smaller volumes may have a particular focus. In To Market! , Peter Spier sets a score of rhymes in the early nineteenth-century market town of New Castle, Delaware. Leonard S. Marcus and Amy Schwartz celebrate the foolish, the disappointed, and various miscreants in a merry take on Mother Goose’s Little Misfortunes. Robert Sabuda’s virtuoso pop-up, The Movable Mother Goose, features arresting graphic design as well as extraordinary paper engineering.

In this book, executive editor Martha Parravano and I, aided by the work of our editorial colleagues, reviewers, and contributors, hope to bring The Horn Book’s point of view to an audience we generally reach only through the librarians and teachers who already know us. It is a book for readers, people who need books as much as food or air, and whose idea of the perfect vacation and/or evening meal is to have more time to read. We shall begin with books for the youngest children and proceed on up through pre-readers to new readers, to the evolving independent reader, to the one who reads with friends, to the one who needs to be left alone.

There’s a simple, benignly empowering part most children can play in the picture-book transaction: turning the pages. If a child is allowed to turn the pages of a picture book himself, whether he is looking at it independently or listening to an adult read, he is in control of the experience. He can choose when to speed up and when to slow down; when to linger on a particularly absorbing spread and when to rush excitedly on to find out what happens on the next page or, conversely, to skip the boring bits.
