The Cybils Awards Judges Are Announced!

It's official! The Cybils Awards Judges Are Announced!
Kristi's Book Nook is a panelist for Round 1!
I'm so excited to be able to read so many books and cast a vote for the best of the best in children's literature for 2016. Stay tuned for more reviews of some really cool books. My category for judging will be EarlyReader/Early Chapter books. 




Cybils Awards Mission The Cybils Awards aims to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal.
