Speakaboos, a publisher of exceptional digital content for children, has announced its spring releases of online titles performed by celebrities – with some proceeds destined for charity.
“Law & Order: SVU” star Christopher Meloni, “The Office” star John Krasinski and Jason Ritter are among the stars to lend their voices to the stories, and at least fifteen percent of Speakaboos’ revenue is contributed directly to charities supporting children’s causes, such as the National Education Association – the leading organization in the US committed to advancing the cause of public education – and the Creative Coalition, formed for the charitable and educational purposes of bringing together artists and entertainers to learn about pressing issues so they can better inform and influence the community and nation.
Spring titles include:
- The Golden Goose, read by Mark Thompson.
- Caperucita Roja (Spanish version of The Little Red Riding Hood) read by Lisa DeSimone.
