Building on its success of marketing CD’s and more recently, movies (Akeelah and the Bee), Starbucks announced today that it will be selling audiobooks for two children’s classic books this fall – "The Velveteen Rabbit" and "The Night Before Christmas".  Both audiobooks are narrated by Meryl Streep with musical accompaniment by George Winston, and come with an illustrated storybook.

Meanwhile, if you can’t wait until the August 29th launch, get a copy of The Velveteen Rabbit at Amazon.com, minus the cup of coffee.
