Only 3 more days to make your nominations for a 2008 Cybils book award! The Cybils (Children's and Young Adult Bloggers Literary book awards) are the only children's book awards done by bloggers. Click here for a pdf of the 2007 Finalists.
Anyone can nominate their favorite books of high quality and kid appeal in each of the nine categories. You can only nominate ONE book in each category, and every book only needs to be named ONCE. After it's on the list it goes to committee. The very best five books are chosen to go to the judging round, where a panel of book blogger judges will chose the best of the best.
Nominated Books by Genre
- Fantasy and Science Fiction
- Fiction Picture Books
- Graphic Novels
- Middle Grade Fiction
- Non-fiction: Middle Grade and Young Adult
- Non-fiction Picture Books
- Young Adult Fiction
- Easy Readers
Last time I checked there were 43 Easy Readers on the list and many more yet to be named. What would you put on that list? How about for Poetry?
