2009 Cybils Awards

The community of children's and young adult book bloggers, aka the kidlitosphere, supports their own book awards with their time and talent. Bloggers nominate the books and serve as panelists and judges. The Cybils awards celebrate "the highest literary merit and "kid appeal."

The winners for 2009 were announced on The Cybils blog on Monday, Feb. 15, 2010. For great summaries and more information, see the announcement.

Purchasing through these links will support the program and help fund these awards.
