Naxos’ My First Orchestra Book is among the nominees for the 2015 Kate Greenaway Children’s Book Awards, announced this week. These are made annually to outstanding books in terms of illustration for children and young people by the UK’s Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP).

Karin Eklund, the illustrator of My First Orchestra Book, together with author Genevieve Helsby, expressed delight at the publication being among the nominations; the shortlist will be announced next March, with the names of the medal-winners following in June.

Considered the gold standard among awards for illustration servicing younger readers, previous winners of the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal include Levi Pinfold, Raymond Briggs, Shirley Hughes and Quentin Blake.
