The 2011 Cybils have been revealed!
I am so proud to have been part of the amazing panel who chose Mo Willems, I Broke My Trunk as the Easy Reader winner
and Have Fun Anna Hibiscus as the Early Chapter Book winner.
There are summaries of each of these books and short posts about why we chose each one at the Cybils website. While you’re there, be sure to check out each of the books that were nominated as well. There were some truly amazing titles in each category.
The decision that our group had to make was extremely difficult and I feel so lucky to have worked with such dedicated book lovers. We exchanged dozens of e-mails talking about what was great about each title, trying hard to pick one from among all our favorites. The process was both challenging and inspiring and I thank each of my fellow panelists for the chance to work with them.
The members of my panel included:
Terry of The Reading Tub, Zoe of Playing by the Book, author, Katie Davis, Amanda of Maestra Amanda’s Bookshelf and Ashley of YA Librarian.
It definitely was an interesting process Stacey, and one I’d love to do again, actually. It also gave me new respect for those who judge prizes like the ALA ones last month. And out of it all I also found some new blogging heroes, like you 🙂
