Have you read some great picture books this year? Super! Get ready to nominate! Or maybe you love early readers, chapter books, middle grade or young adult novels? Nominations open on October 1, and you'll want to keep me busy reading, right? You've got until October 15th to nominate, so it's time to reevaluate the past year. Hmmm... what were my favorites again? You'll find nomination guidelines here.
Keep the CYBILS mission in mind:
"We aim to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal."
Our picture book panel is headed by the amazing Pam Coughlin of Mother Reader and KidLitoSphere.
