Cybils! Bloggers’ Best Kid Lit

September 20, 2013

Children and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards

If you don’t know about Cybils, then check it out.  All year, since October 16th of 2012, there have been wonderful books and apps coming out for children and young adults that are worthy of recognition.  At Cybils–Children and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Awards–a host of judges who run blogs about kid-lit will review hundreds of nominations from the public to award well-deserved recognition for contributions to children’s literature.

You can follow at the Cybils website by subscription and receive emails that update you on the competition. I am following the process so that I can become more aware of the trends and far-reaching impact of works for children in today’s reading world.

Some of my writing friends and acquaintances are some of the judges this year, and I’ll especially be following their reviews and comments as the process continues. There’s Ed DeCaria (Think Kid Think), Renee LaTulippe (No Water River), Carol Munro (Just Write Words).
