CYBILS time again!

 I am so glad to see the CYBILS getting good press all over the place. While the Newbery is that pretty gold seal that fancies up a children's book, it is many times a better pick for teachers and librarians than for 'kids.' That is what I really enjoyed about judging last year....really looking for good books with kid appeal.

I bought 30 copies of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda this school-year and our 6th grade kids are eating it up and running out to buy Darth Paper Strikes Back! What more can a reading specialist ask for?

In case you missed them.... Here are last year's winners: CYBILS 2010.
Keep your eyes peeled for the 2011 awards. They are announced on Valentine's Day each year (that's 2/14/2012 :-)

Welcome Children's Literature Lovers. I love your comments and hope to get to them ASAP, but if I miss one or am slow on the response, please forgive me. I am probably off buying books or reading books or talking about books. I am very, very glad that you are here.
