2007 Cybils Awards

Fall 2007 reading at our house had a higher than usual non-fiction slant as Andrea joined kidLit bloggers:

on the Non-Fiction Picture Books nominating committee for the second annual Cybils Awards.

In celebration of today’s announcement of finalists in Graphic Novels, Non-Fiction Picture Books, Non-Fiction MG/YA and Young Adult Novels categories of the 2007 Cybils Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards, Mark speaks with Non-Fiction Picture Book panelists Tricia Stohr-Hunt and Fiona Bayrock about a nomination and finalist process done completely online and how a team of five people were able to collaborate to pick seven of forty-six books.

Be sure to pop over to Cybils Central to get the scoop on all the fabulous finalists and, while you’re there, check out the full list of non-fiction picture book nominees.

You can also check out some of the panelists’ thoughts on some of the 46 nominated titles:
