B&H launching new children's book division

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- B&H Publishing Group will launch a new children's division this fall called B&H Kids.

B&H Kids will print biblically based books and products for children, pre-teens and youth, including picture books, fiction titles, full-text Bibles and study Bibles.

Initial releases for B&H Kids include two titles with faith-based movie tie-ins and two children's Bibles.

The "Read-to-Me Toddlers Bible," available in both English and Spanish, will offer interactive mobile apps. The "365 Day Children's Bible Storybook" also is scheduled for a fall release.

Titles with movie tie-ins include "Firebird" -- an illustrated tale featured in the new film "Unconditional" (in theaters Sept. 21) -- and "Courageous Teens," the latest in a series of products based on the box office hit movie, "Courageous."

Selma Wilson, president of B&H, said the new children's division will "provide tools for parents to build strong connections with their kids. We want to become a trusted teaching partner for parents whenever they need biblically and theologically sound, age appropriate, engaging content."

The main age group focus will be 4- to 8-year-olds and 8- to 12-year-olds.

"These two age groups are where lifelong fundamentals are adopted and when the majority of decisions for Christ are made," B&H Kids Editor Dan Lynch said. "B&H Kids is taking off in a big way with a strong commitment toward publishing fun and innovative content and tools to engage children. Whether it's print or digital, a book or an app, our products will be geared to help parents and leaders interact with their kids in ways that truly make an impact, a powerful difference in their lives."

B&H Publishing Group is a division of LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention.
