The Spongebob Squarepants English Book series of educational English language books has scooped a special award in Korea.

Nickelodeon Consumer Products International and its partner BIR (through children's imprint Gorilla Box) has won the English Reading Education category at the 9th Korea Education Brand Awards, organised by Brand Stock.

The series includes 42 titles across three reading stages. These are Spongebob Squarepants Reader's Book, Spongebob Squarepants Story Book and Spongebob Squarepants Chapter Book.

Each comes with a CD, narrated by an English speaker, plus a vocabulary and language list designed to assist Korean-speaking children in their learning of English phrases and expressions.

There is also dedicated online content.

The series is due to grow further in 2012, with another ten titles planned.
