Publisher Information

Boyds Mills Press

(Imprint of Highlights)

Boyds Mills Press, the trade division of Highlights for Children, Inc., was launched in 1990. Publishing books was a logical step for Highlights, which has a long tradition of helping children develop a love of reading. Boyds Mills Press publishes books that enlighten and entertain, reaching children primarily through bookstores, libraries, and schools. Respect for children is among the highest priorities when we acquire a manuscript. We aim to publish good stories with lasting value. We avoid the trend and never publish a book simply to fill a market need. We believe in and are committed to publishing and exposing young readers to the best literature available in other countries, cultures, and languages. We believe in new voices. Finally, we believe books should be beautiful to look at and to hold.

Specifically interested in books with these subjects or themes: activity, picture books and fiction for 9-12 year olds.
