Non-Fiction Monday: Sibert Medal Honors Two of the CYBILS NFPB Finalists

Two of the “Spectacular Seven” finalists for the CYBILS NFPB Award were in the spotlight this morning at the ALA Mid-Winter Conference (Someday I am going to go).  

The Day-Glo Brothers: The True Story of Bob and Joe Switzer’s Bright Ideas and Brand-New Colors
written by Chris Barton and illustrated by Tony Persiani and Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11
written and illustrated by Brian Floca were named as Sibert Medal Honor books.

The Sibert Medal went to Almost Astronauts: 13 Women Who Dared to Dream! by Tanya Lee Stone.

I am so happy for them.  Meanwhile the Round Two judges are hard at work in their own secret discussion and reading the “spectacular seven”.  So I will leave them alone to work.

So something I want to do for next year, is to chat with local area bloggers, predict, and meet for breakfast like my friends in Ohio did this morning.  You can read about it here.

Wendie is rounding all the non-fiction up today at Wendie’s Wanderings.

Happy Reading.
