Ladybug Picture Book Award 2023 Longlist

Since mid-November we have collected potential nominations from NH librarians for the 2023 Ladybug Picture Book Award and are now ready to gather votes from NH's librarians on which of the 82 titles suggested belong on the final list of nominees for this year's award. If you work in a public or school library in NH you are invited to vote on the nominees.

Before you vote you will want to review the long list of suggested titles and decide on your selections. You can vote for up to 5 titles from the long list. There will be a second round of voting this year. The top vote getters from this survey will be put up to another vote by the NH library community to select the very best choices for our list.

Each afternoon for the next several weeks we will be posting groups of the long list nominees for your consideration. These are sets of books grouped by topic to help you consider all the books in more manageable batches. The topics are, in many cases, only one aspect of what the book is "about" and many books could have gone into multiple topics, but we wanted to provide "bite-sized pieces" of the rather long long list and these topics let us group the titles so that no post has too many books in it.

PLEASE NOTE that you can only vote once from your device (phone, computer, whatever you use to browse the web) so don't go to the survey to see your choices, do that from the long list, as you will not be able to go back again to vote.

Once you have reviewed the options and made your choices you will cast your vote online

You may vote between now and February 26, 2023.

We expect to announce the second round of nominee voting here on the blog by the end of February.
