Regular readers of this blog know I’m a huge audiobook fan (I’ve listened to over 50 since the beginning of the year). In my eclectic mix of books, I really enjoy YA and some children’s books as well. In addition, I like sharing books with my 12 year old daughter.
Given that, I was excited by this news:
Brilliance Audio is launching a new imprint of children’s books, Candlewick on Brilliance Audio.
Even more exciting to me, they sent me CDs of the titles they are launching in September:
- For ages 9+
- Toby and the Secrets of the Tree by Timothée de Fombelle
- Toby Alone by Timothée de Fombelle
- The Magician’s Elephant by Kate DiCamillo
- If I Had a Hammer by David Rubel
- Octavia Boone’s Big Questions about Life, The Universe and Everything by Rebecca Rupp
- For ages 12+
- For ages 14+
- Beat the Band by Don Calame
- For ages 15+
- Boys, Bears and a Serious Pair of Hiking Boots by Abby McDonald
- Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
- Sophomore Switch by Abby McDonald
- Girl Parts by John M. Cusick
(I’ve linked to the books on Brilliance Audio’s download site, but they’re available as CDs and MP3 CDs as well)
This is a fantastic assortment of books. As you would expect from such a wide range, some of them are calling to me more than others– Finnikin of the Rock is already on my MP3 player. My daughter immediately thought that Boy Trouble looks funny. Flip through the covers, you may find something that calls to you!
