NASHVILLE, Tenn., 7/12/2012 – B&H Publishing Group is excited to play in the children’s marketplace with the fall 2012 launch of its B&H Kids imprint, led by a fun assortment of movie tie-in projects and Bible storybooks plus a highly experienced editorial and marketing team.
Flagship releases include Firebird—a colorfully illustrated tale featured in the inspiring new film Unconditional (in theaters fall 2012)—and Courageous Teens, the latest in a series of popular products based on box office hit Courageous that includes current bestsellers The Resolution for Men and The Resolution for Women.
A Read-to-Me Toddlers Bible (available in English and Spanish with associated interactive apps) and The 365 Day Children’s Bible Storybook are also scheduled for fall 2012 release. Several complete Bibles for kids featuring a unique range of classic and modern designs are planned for winter 2013.
The B&H Kids team is guided by lead acquisitions editor Dan Lynch, whose thirty years of experience include tenures at Word Records and Tommy Nelson, and marketing vice president Mary Katharine Hunt who was previously a director for LifeWay Kids. Additional support is provided by acquisitions editor Dawn Woods (formerly of Thomas Nelson) and marketing strategist Shannon Kozee who most recently was a marketing manager at Big Idea.
“B&H Kids is taking off in a big way with a strong commitment to fun and innovative content and tools to engage children,” Lynch said. “Whether it’s print or digital, a book or an app, our products are especially geared to help parents and leaders interact with kids in ways that truly make an impact, a powerful difference in their lives.”
Hunt agreed, “With tools to help parents build a strong connection with their kids in ways they never have before, B&H Kids will become a trusted teaching partner for them to turn to time and again whenever they need biblically and theologically sound, age appropriate, engaging content.”
B&H Publishing Group, a division of LifeWay Christian Resources, is a team of more than 100 mission-minded people with a passion for taking God’s Word to the world. Because we believe Every Word Matters we seek to provide intentional, Bible-centered content that positively impacts the hearts and minds of people, inspiring them to build a lifelong relationship with Jesus Christ. Among our print and digital releases for the trade, church, and academic markets, titles include New York Times No. 1 bestsellers The Love Dare and The Vow as well as the award-winning HCSB Study Bible.
