MCLEAN, VA, USA, December 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cricket Media today announced a new partnership with TIME for Kids, that allows Cricket Media to distribute TIME for Kids content through its digital library. The addition of TIME for Kids content—including a selection of articles available in both English and Spanish, as well as audio recordings—to Cricket’s library will allow licensees, such as institutional and corporate customers, to access thousands of topics across hundreds of issues, in one easy-to-use interface. With Cricket Media and TIME for Kids content in one searchable database, customers will have a wider range of selections in the PreK-12 grade levels, providing a one-stop-shop for current and easily accessible materials on a variety of topics, from politics and the environment to arts and culture. These can be used for assessment design, book publishing, curriculum development, and more.
“To have these two top names in children’s publishing working together is a big deal. This opportunity gives consumers in the educational market even more options to easily access and license top-quality content,” says Bob Sanregret, Senior Vice President, Sales. “The selection of material TIME for Kids provides is a perfect complement to the stories, activities, illustrations, articles, poems, games, and more for which Cricket Media is known.”
Cricket Media publishes nine award-winning magazines, which are unsurpassed in quality and breadth, relevant across cultures, and adaptable to multiple standards and pedagogies. Partners can currently license PreK–12 curricula, assessments, and educational products using Cricket Media’s digital asset library.
