Cybils Award Winners 2008-2009

The Cybils Award Winners were announced yesterday. It looks like I have a few more books to read. I'm a little surprised that once again Gaiman's The Graveyard Book was a top pick. Guess I'll have to read it for myself and see what all the hype is about.

Below are a few of the winners. Be sure to visit The 2008-9 Cybils Winners Page if you want to see all the picks.

Fiction Picture Book
How to Heal a Broken Wing by Bob Graham

Easy Reader
I Love My New Toy! by Mo Willems

Cybils is an acronym for Children's and YA Bloggers' Literary Awards. The goal of the Cybils team (some 100 bloggers) is to highlight books that are high in both literary quality and kid appeal. The Cybils were founded by Anne Boles Levy and Kelly Herold. This is the third year for the awards.
