I’ve read considerably more in this category but I can’t post my shortlist since I’m serving as a panelist. There are some great books in this category and I’m excited to see what we ultimately come up with as a final shortlist. Be sure to check on Jan 1st to see what we came up with (and to see the other shortlists)!

Fiction Picture Books:

The Man with the Violin by Kathy Stinson

Flora and the Flamingo by Molly Idle

Mr. Wuffles by David Wiesner

That is Not a Good Idea! by Mo Willems

Middle-Grade Fiction:
Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library
by Chris Grabenstein

I didn’t really read enough of any category other than non-fiction to make an educated shortlist but just for fun here is my personal and fairly uneducated shortlist for fiction picture books:

Ah ha! by Jeff Mack
Mr. Wuffles by David Wiesner
Ollie and Claire by Tiffany Strelitz Haber
That is Not a Good Idea! by Mo Willems
The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt
123 vs ABC by Mike Boldt
Mr. Tiger Goes Wild by Peter Brown

Stop by Hope is the Word for more Armchair Cybils! If you are looking for Christmas presents you are sure to find some great books there.
