What are the Cybils? It's the Children and Young Adult Bloggers Literary Awards. The cool thing about the Cybils is they look for books that have both child appeal and literary merit. These are the books I KNOW my students will read and enjoy. And so will I!
What Now?Book nominations will run from October 1 - October 15.
You can nominate one book in each genre. Books should be published from October 16, 2009 to September 30, 2010.
What is the best MG and YA books you've read that fit those criteria?
Round 1 judges will be reading like crazy and announce their short list on New Year's Day! Happy New Year, here are some books to read!
Round 2 judges will read those books and announce the winners on Valentine's Day! I Love You and I love these books!
This is truly an honor for me. I've followed the Cybils longer than I've followed the Newbery or Printz awards! And as a past NF MG/YA panelist, I know how much time and attention these bloggers put into finding the best books! That's one of the reasons they post all the past finalists on the right hand side of the blog, these are the books you want to buy for your library or classroom. Print out one (or all) of the lists posted in the Cybils right side bar and start shopping!
Don't forget to nominate some books!
