The CYBILS (Children’s and Young Adult Bloggers’ Literary Award) has added a new category to their list of contest genres: Easy Readers. Yea for easys!!! I love seeing easy readers added to the contest. I’ve always said it’s the most overlooked genre in children’s literature and this is another step in recognizing their significance. And guess what? I’m a judge for this year’s contest! Yowza! I’m so looking forward to reviewing the finalists and working with the other judges.
