October is always a great month for finding quality children’s and young adult books because that is when the Cybils nomination lists are released.
The Cybils website has been revamped a bit, so here are direct links to some of the lists at the Cybils website and a few books I have chosen to highlight in an Amazon widget. Note: If you click on the books in the widget it will take you to Amazon. Clicking only the arrows allows you to view the books without leaving this blog.
I hadn’t seen some of these poetry books. They look really good.
I will be reviewing a number of the elementary and middle grade nonfiction books (the ones that I haven’t previously reviewed) over the next few weeks.
By the way, Eyes Wide Open: Going Behind the Environmental Headlines by Paul Fleischman has been nominated for the AAAS/Subaru SB&F awards in the middle grade category this year and it is on the young adult list here.
