2011 CYBILS, Nonfiction Picture Books… and me!


I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that I’ve been selected to serve as a judge in the nonfiction picture book (NFPB) category of the 2011 CYBILS (Children’s and Young Adult Blogger’s Literary Awards)!

I write nonfiction picture books, so I read a lot of nonfiction picture books. Now, I get to help recognize the best of the best. Nominations have opened, titles are rolling in, and I’ve already started reading. You can see what has been nominated here, and you can add your own nomination here. I’m not sure I’ll get much writing done in October, but it will be an epic month of great reading, I’m sure! Stay tuned for reviews of nominated titles.

  1. Ooh, enjoy! I was on the last-round panel for the same Cybils category a couple years ago, and it was lots of fun. Great books and great discussions about them. Go NF!

    • Thanks, Lisa! First round is a LOT of reading, but thank goodness it’s a picture book category at least. I’m already looking over the list of nominations and wondering how on Earth we’re going to choose. There are so many good books there, and nominations have only been open for a few days!
