Michael Foreman joins Booktrust Early Years judges

4th June 2010

Award-winning children's writer and illustrator Michael Foreman will join the judging panel of the 2010 Booktrust Early Years Awards.

The Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish author said he is 'so pleased' to be involved with the award, which seeks to recognise the best books for babies, toddlers and pre-school children.

Foreman added that illustrated books are important for encouraging young readers to use the power of their imaginations and make sense of the world around them.

'In recognising this, the awards are welcomed by publishing as a whole and especially by all those childrens' illustrators beavering away in their studios - those just starting out and those of us who have been around a while,' he commented.

Other members of the judging panel include TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher, Bookstart founder Wendy Cooling, Bookstart coordinator Janet Harrison and NHS modern matron Jackie Woodroffe.

Last year, Ed Vere won the Booktrust Early Years Awards' baby book category with Chick. Oliver Who Travelled Far and Wide by Mara Bergman took the pre-school award and Katie Cleminson was named best emerging illustrator for Box of Tricks.
