Very good so far. Just started. We are also finishing up The Outsiders as a read-aloud. Ada’s class read it this year. She loved it soooo much she asked if we could read it together. I was probably her age last time I read it. Kinda wild to read now.

To single out just one article in the latest issue of the Horn Book would be criminal. (Jason Reynold’s piece gave me goosebumps all over.) But I wish Kekla Magoon’s piece could be required reading for everyone in publishing. Thanks for this issue, .
