The Cybils finalists were announced recently, and I was so happy to see one my nominations on the Fiction Picture Books listA Beach Tail by Karen Lynn Williams and illustrated by Floyd Cooper.  It’s like a little piece of summer on a cold day.  Not like I can take any credit, really, since I’m sure someone else would’ve nominated it, but it’s a fun story and I’m glad to see it made the list.  There are a lot of intriguing choices in the finalists, and plenty of ideas if you need to fatten up your to-read list.
