Said Peter Esposito, CEO and President, CFM Publishing, “Standard Publishing’s core strengths are in providing curriculum, adult Bible study, and special programming resources for the church.   We are glad to have found a home for these books where their ministry value can be continued.”
This is a key initiative for B&H Kids as they continue to seek opportunities to expand their product offering for preschoolers and their teachers and parents. The majority of B&H Kids content previously has been developed for 4-8 and 8-12 year olds. B&H Kids will be releasing some of the newly acquired titles in 2015 and redeveloping some of the content for future releases in 2016 and beyond.
“We are so pleased that we’ve been given this opportunity,” said Dan Lynch, publisher of B&H Kids. “Our team has already begun to evaluate these products, and we see great potential in bringing these biblical resources for kids back into the market.”
Selma Wilson, president of B&H Publishing Group, agrees.
“We’re excited about this acquisition and what it will bring to B&H Kids,” noted Wilson. “Since we entered the kids category in 2012, we have seen strong growth as we built both our product line and the B&H Kids editorial and marketing team. We are committed to serving the market, both here and around the world, by providing great kids’ resources that help parents connect with their children on biblical truth. This acquisition strengthens our mission.”
