Nominations for the third annual Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards (the Cybils) are open from now til October 15th.  The Cybils recognize children's books that combine literary quality and kid appeal.  Anyone (that means you) can nominate a book in any or all of the following nine categories:

To nominate a book, visit the Cybils blog and leave a comment (title and author will do) on the appropriate post.  Clicking on the category links above will take you right there.


  • Nominated books must have been published in 2008
  • One nomination per person, per category
  • Multiple nominations will not help a book's chances.  Pick another book!

I'll be offering my short lists (um, for your consideration) over the next week or so.  What are you nominating?
