Company is only producer of many of 2009’s best-selling children’s audio titles

Recorded Books K-12, a leading publisher of K-12 education curriculum and the world’s largest independent producer of audiobooks, is proud to announce that it has exclusive audio rights for many of the best-selling children’s book titles of 2009.

These titles have been flying off bookshelves nationwide, and now schools and libraries will have audiobook options to meet the high demand for these titles. Recorded Books’ offerings include Jeff Kinney’s best-sellers The Last Straw (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, book three) and Dog Days (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, book four), along with series for readers of all ages such as Melissa de la Cruz’s Blue Blood series, Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series and Kelley Armstrong’s Darkest Powers series.

These titles and hundreds of others are now available through Recorded Books for schools and libraries to purchase multiple formats including unabridged CD, Playaway digital audiobook and unabridged cassette.

“These popular books are already instilling a love of reading in younger readers, and now these audiobooks will truly capture the adventure and emotions in each tale for today’s iPod generation of readers,” says Scott Williams, CEO of Recorded Books. “Bringing authentic literature to today’s learners is part of our company’s mission, and we look forward to adding new titles to our catalog of over 800 titles available on OneClick download.”
