Iron Stream Media launches premier title in Children’s line, New Hope Kidz

(Birmingham) August 20, 2019—Iron Stream Media is excited to announce the launch of Rivers Overseas, the inaugural title in the New Hope Kidz line. The new imprint is designed to engage the hearts and minds of young readers for Christ. Rivers Overseas does just that and more.

Readers are invited to take an incredible journey with the loveable and adorable puppy Rivers as he travels overseas with his adoptive dad. Rivers, through his own journey, experiences the world through God’s eyes and finds joy in God’s faithfulness as he encounters new people, places, and things. It is a delightful story of adventure and learning to love something new—even when you have to leave the comforts of home. Colorful illustrations make this a must-read for young children who are just forming their understanding of love in action and different cultures.

Associate Publisher Ramona Richards remarked, “I started my career in publishing with children’s books, and I’m thrilled to be able to work with a children’s line again. Picture books have a long life and the potential to reach more than one generation of children. Sarah Nunnally’s Rivers Overseas is just such a book, with a timeless message of hope and an endearing—and enduring—central character. Rivers, the goldendoodle, captured my heart.”

Iron Stream Media will continue to release New Hope Kidz titles that capture young readers’ imaginations and grow their understanding and relationship with God.

Iron Stream Media derives its name from Proverbs 27:17, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” This sharpening describes the process of discipleship, one to another. Iron Stream Media provides a variety of solutions for churches, missionaries, and nonprofits that include in-depth Bible study curriculum, Christian book publishing, and consultative services. Iron Stream Media is the home of New Hope Publishers, Iron Stream Books, Ascender Books, and New Hope Kidz. Through the popular Life Bible Study and Student Life Bible Study brands, they also provide web-based, full-year and short-term Bible study teaching plans as well as printed devotionals, Bibles, and discipleship curriculum.
