FaithWords and JellyTelly announce a new
Children’s book imprint

Nashville, TN, November 1, 2017 – FaithWords, a division of Hachette Book Group, and JellyTelly, a leading Children’s media company, have announced an innovative partnership to bring a new program of children’s books and Bibles for Christian Families to the marketplace.

This is a unique collaboration between FaithWords, a leading publisher in the Christian Inspiration market and JellyTelly, a children’s media company resourcing and inspiring Christian parents every day through video and print media experiences. This new imprint, JellyTelly Press, will bring to the market board books and coloring books for preschoolers, picture books, activity books and chapter books for elementary schoolers as well as Bibles and books for family devotionals.

“JellyTelly is excited to partner with a world-class team like FaithWords. While our JellyTelly users enjoy our streaming video service, they also want to experience the time-honored tradition of reading books together with their children. We regularly hear from our parents that books remain an important part of their family life. Our partnership with FaithWords takes advantage of our online JellyTelly platform and extends our efforts to help families have fun and experience their faith together offline. Books are a great way to do that,” said Dan Raines, President of JellyTelly.

“This new venture is being launched at an opportune moment,” said Rolf Zettersten, FaithWords publisher. “The Millennial generation is the largest in our history. These young people are now seeking inspirational resources to raise their families. We believe JellyTelly Press is coming at an ideal time for booksellers to meet their needs.”

With books written by Veggie Tales and What’s In the Bible? creator Phil Vischer and others, JellyTelly Press titles will debut in January 2019. JellyTelly Press titles will be taken market wide by the Hachette Book Group sales team and direct-to-consumer by JellyTelly.
