The Horn Book Magazine, founded in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1924, is a bimonthly periodical about literature for children and young adults. It began life as a "suggestive purchase list" prepared by Bertha Mahony Miller and Elinor Whitney Field, proprietresses of the country's first bookstore for children, The Bookshop for Boys and Girls, which opened in 1916 in Boston, as a project of the Women's Educational and Industrial Union. The Bookshop closed in 1936, but the Magazine continues in its mission to 'blow the horn for fine books for boys and girls," as Miss Mahony put it in her first editorial.

In each issue, The Horn Book Magazine includes articles about issues and trends in children's literature, essays by artists and authors, and reviews of new books for children. The January/February issue includes the speeches of the winners of the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, and each July/August issue includes the same from the winners of the year's Newbery Medal and Caldecott Medal.

Chosen annually by the editors, Fanfare is The Horn Book Magazine’s selection of the best children’s and young adult books of the year. No lists were published from 1941 to 1945, or 1955 to 1958.

The Horn Book was purchased in 2009 by Media Source, owner of the Junior Library Guild. Media Source would go on to acquire Library Journal and School Library Journal in 2010.
