Horn Book Fanfare

 From Horn Book Magazine:

Fanfare is the Horn Book’s selection for the best books published for children and teens in 2011. Publishing trends being what they are, the editors make no attempt to provide a balanced list (where’s the folklore?), but you will find the thirty choices fairly evenly divided among picture books, fiction, and nonfiction. Do note crossovers: many of the books are suggested for a range of ages, and several straddle genres: is Joyce Sidman and Beth Krommes’s beautiful Swirl By Swirl nonfiction, picture book, or poetry? The Fanfare books are selected by the reviewers and editors of The Horn Book Magazine from the more than five hundred books reviewed each year.
