It's that time of year again: CYBILS 2019!!!

I am excited to announce that I have been chosen as a round 1 CYBILS judge in the category of picture & board books. It's a new category for me this year, but one dear to my heart.

When I was a middle school reading specialist and literacy coach, I served on CYBILS middle grade fiction and speculative fiction a few times, but I have always had an abiding love of picture books and a decent knowledge of them. I used them constantly as a teacher (who doesn't) and even as coaching tools with inservice teachers. However, I have been much more involved with them recently while teaching a foundational reading course to preservice elementary educators.

Reading, teaching, mentor texts, bedtime stories, visual aides, way-in books.... however you look at them...

I will be hanging with some cool new peeps and I can't wait to see what amazing new finds we uncover. Lame puns aside, here are the lovely folks on my team:
