From Jen Robinson’s blog:
“Anyone can nominate books in these categories (one nomination per person per category). Nominated titles must be:
**published between January 1st and October 15th of this year
**the books must be in English (or bilingual, where one of the languages is English).
To nominate titles, visit the Cybils blog between October 1st and 15th. A separate post will be available for each category – simply nominate by commenting on those individual posts. If you are not sure which category to choose for a particular book, a questions thread will also be available.
Between October 16th and January 1st, Cybils panelists (children’s and young adult bloggers) will winnow the nominations down to a 5-7 book short list for each category. A second set of panelists will then select the winning titles for the different categories. The winners will be announced on February 14th, 2009.
I am leaving the poetry category this year and will be on the Non-fiction Picture Book Panel.
So what great books published in 2008 have you read? Go! Nominate a book!
