Cybils and Nonfiction Picture Books

I am honored and thrilled to have been selected to join the Cybils Awards process this year, actually a little bubbly!  The Cybils Awards are chosen and given by bloggers for children's and young adult text.  I've read and followed some of the Cybils buzz in the past on and off however, I just learned a lot about the whole process from the Cybils FAQ page.  I am excited to be thinking about and discussing Nonfiction Picture Books.  Nonfiction is a genre for everyone to reckon with if you are carefully reading the Common Core.  I'm also interested in what new authors are doing to make nonfiction accessible to emergent readers.  I feel very lucky to have a reason to discuss books with new friends on the Cybils Award process.  I also feel very lucky to have Round 1 judges looking for the best to pass along to the Round 2 judges.  You can find the complete list of judges at the Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards.


  1. Yay! Glad to be working with you in January!

  2. Congratulations! I'm so excited to learn from you.
