For more information and to see what's been nominated already, read this post.
The Cybils are the first grassroots, volunteer blogger-driven children's book awards, now in its 11th year, and it costs you nothing to nominate! All eligible nominations will be read by the Round 1 panel of judges during the first reading period and winnowed down to a list of 5-7 finalists per category. So nominate, and spread the word--public nominations end on Oct. 15th. Author and publisher nominations are open from Oct. 16-25.
And if you can't think of a book to nominate, you can still support the Cybils by buying Really Cool Swag(TM) on the CafePress store. Go on. You know you want a mouse pad.
