Baker & Taylor's Silver Dolphin Books Receives
Five Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Awards

Company's Publishing Group Also Has Two Winning Books on Today Show

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - September 15, 2009 - Silver Dolphin Books, part of Baker & Taylor Publishing Group, is proud to announce it has received five Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Awards and that two of its winning books were featured this morning on NBC's The Today Show.

Journal of Inventions: Leonardo da Vinci (ISBN: 978-1-59223-908-5) won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award (2009). World of Inventors: Alexander Graham Bell (ISBN: 978-1-59223-892-7) won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award (2009). Both were featured today in a Today Show segment on educational toys and books.

These titles introduce young readers to some of the world's greatest inventors, chronicling their inventions and the inspirations behind them. Basically, they teach children to think like inventors. Journal of Inventions: Leonardo da Vinci is an exquisite collection of elaborate 3-D pop-ups and detailed illustrations based on the personal notebooks and sketches of the Renaissance's most influential mind. In World of Inventors: Alexander Graham Bell, children can bring one of the great inventor's designs to life with a build-it-yourself telephone.

"Our books are really unique. Kids have fun while they learn all about early inventors," said Sydney Stanley, Executive Vice President, Publishing for Baker & Taylor. "Parents love the quality and vitality of the books and activities, as well as seeing their kids reading, learning and having fun at the same time."

The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio is the only independent consumer review of children's media. The products chosen are "award winning" because they were selected by a noted expert in child development, children's literature and education, and were further tested by children themselves.

Two other Silver Dolphin books won Oppenheim awards today. Amazing Baby: Baby, Boo! (ISBN: 978-1-59223-7) picked up an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award (2009) and an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio SNAP Award (2009). And The Wonders Inside: Bugs & Spiders (978-1-57145-907-7) won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award (2009).

Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, Inc. recognized two other Silver Dolphin books earlier this year. Explore Within a Medieval Castle (ISBN: 978-1-59223-747-0) received an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award (2009) and Oceans (ISBN: 978-1-59223-888-0) from Silver Dolphin Books' Kaleidopops series won an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award (2009).
