105 Ways to Give a Book

Cybils Awards

For many of us in the kidlitosphere, Valentine’s Day is becoming less about love and more about books. Great books! Cybils Award Winning Books! The list is out at the website, but I’ll offer a teaser for the category that I led, Fiction Picture Books. I was exceedingly happy with our finalist list, but one winner must be chosen, and that book is...

Interrupting ChickenInterrupting Chicken
by David Ezra Stein
As Little Red Chicken interrupts her Papa’s bedtime stories to create her own endings for classic fairy tales, children are immersed in the possibilities of their imaginations. Through an enthusiastic character, relatable situation and strikingly bold illustrations, children are transported to an evening bedtime ritual that becomes more than your average reading. Interrupting Chicken is a picture book that will have children and parents alike laughing all the way to the last page, making it a perfect bedtime and group reading story.

Congratulations to our winning author! And much thanks to the dedicated team of panelists and judges!

I can't wait to read Interupting Chicken and We are in a Book. I am also interested in The Shadows, a debut book by Jaqueline West. I've already read Origami Yoda.
I am very happy for all the winners
