Elementary/Middle Grade Nonfiction Cybils Nominations

This is the full list of nominations for the category of which I am chair, elementary and middle grade nonfiction. I try to make sure I've read as many titles as possible, so as to be able to approve titles and moderate discussions.

Just FYI, I think Two Truths and a Lie: It's Alive! is more science and nature than social sciences? I can see the argument for either, though. =D

Yeah, I went back and forth on it, but decided that since a large part of it is teaching kids to be critical readers/evaluate materials it went better in social sciences. By the way, I used it in a book club and it was a hit!
