In a new initiative, Open Road will digitally publish, distribute, and market many of Kar-Ben Publishing’s titles as read-aloud e-books. The partnership will launch with 11 read-aloud e-books, including It's A Mitzvah, Grover! and three books from the bestselling Sammy Spider series, written by Sylvia A. Rouss and illustrated by Katherine Janus Kahn. This new initiative follows similar alliances Open Road has formed with other children's publishers, including Albert Whitman, Annick Press, Kids Can Press, and Holiday House.
