In case you missed the announcement last week, the Fiction Picture Book panelists and judges for Cybils 2016 are official. I am honored to have been selected to help judge the fiction picture books, including board books. That means I'll be reading a lot of picture books over the next couple of months. And I'll be sharing many reviews with you all as we work towards finding the best picture books of 2016.
Nominations open October 1st, so head on over to the Cybils website next week to nominate your favorite picture books published in 2016.
