“Combining Crayola’s beloved brand and art expertise with Lerner’s proven publishing program in the school, library, and trade markets makes for a wonderful partnership,” said Adam Lerner, Publisher and CEO of Lerner Publishing Group. “As part of our commitment to building strong foundations for literacy and learning, our new books include hands-on activities designed to encourage creative thinking and inspire curiosity and exploration.”
“At Crayola, we believe storytelling is key to unleashing the creative spirit that lives in every child,” said Warren Schorr, Vice President of Business Development and Global Licensing at Crayola. “When a child is read a colorful story, it opens a window into their imagination. Our hope is for the new books to encourage kids to share their colorful stories and celebrate the unique vision of the world around them.”
