Cybils---Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards--- announced the finalists for the 2020 Awards on January 1st.
Once again I am a second-round judge for the nonfiction category. Because of COVID-related issues our judging duties have been expanded to include elementary nonfiction as well. That means that this year I will be reading and evaluating 21 books by February 14th, the date the winners are announced.
Take a look at the finalists in all categories here. (Cybils)
