This year I am on a judging panel; I'll be judging the short list of the Nonfiction Picture Books category. I love nonfiction books, as you might have noticed with my participation in the Nonfiction Monday meme. I cannot wait to see how the Round 1 judges break down this list, so far there are amazing nominations!
Did you know that the public (ie. bloggers) can make their own nominations? That's the beauty of these book awards. From October 1 to 15 you can nominate your favourite books published from October 16, 2011 to October 15, 2012 in a number of categories, from poetry to science fiction.
My problem is you can only nominate one title per category. *sob* I am having a hard time deciding between Virginia Wolf and Sora and the Cloud, which are my two favourite fiction picture books. Ever. There are a number of fiction picture books that deserve nominations this year. Won't you nominate one
Cybil-worthy Fiction Picture Books
Plant A Kiss (Would also work in early reader category)
