Jennifer is excited to be a first-time category chair for Nonfiction Picture Books. She has been on Cybils panels for three years and is looking forward to being in control. Mwa-ha-ha! When not obsessively reading and reviewing for one of her two blogs, Jean Little Library and Flying Off My Bookshelf she is the youth services librarian for the mid-sized public library in Elkhorn, WI. She has always enjoyed nonfiction for children but became especially interested in titles for younger children several years ago when she was restructuring the children's programming and now includes nonfiction in as many programs as possible, from early literacy storytimes to after school art programs. Jennifer sees nonfiction as an integral part of her personal mission to introduce children to the amazing world around them and foster a sense of wonder and delight.
