More Guide reviews

We have just uploaded some five hundred new reviews to the Horn Book Guide Online, check it out.

And I've just finished proofreading the preschool section of the forthcoming (print) edition of the Guide. Lots of go-to-sleep books, along with the apparently unstoppable flood of Mommy/Daddy-Love-You-More-than-Anyone-Has-Been-Loved, Ever (and you had better love him/her right back) books. My generation certainly raised a bumper crop of insecure parents.

I remember John Keller, then Little Brown president/publisher, referring to those as the "I Love You Even More Than This Book Does" genre.

I believe that was Rick Richter's bon mot.
