You can contribute to my reading pile by nominating amazing picture books for review. Nominations open October 1 and will remain open to the public for 15 days. So, reevaluate what you have read this past year. What were the best of the best titles? You’ll find nomination guidelines HERE and a description of what our category is reading HERE. You can nominate in many categories... not just picture books.
Allow the CYBILS mission to guide you:
"We aim to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal."
