COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 2007) David C. Cook and Exclaim Entertainment have expanded their business relationship and established David C. Cook as the master license holder for all BOZ, The Green Bear Next Door™ learning resources into the Christian market.
“When the leadership team at David C. Cook began discussing our desire to equip parents with the best possible resources to build faith in their children’s lives, we felt a natural kinship with the creators of BOZ and Exclaim Entertainment,” says Cook Senior VP and Publisher, Dan Rich.
Adding to David C. Cook’s fall 2007 release schedule will be an additional eight products that include toys, games, and learning resources that help parents instill a foundation of faith in the lives of their children. Retailers can expect more BOZ learning resources from David C. Cook in 2008 and 2009, including a preschool curriculum that will be adaptable for all kinds of group uses, from small group to daycare settings and home schooling, to mid-week programming and neighborhood outreach.
In celebration of their expanded relationship with Exclaim Entertainment, David C. Cook will hold a WowieBOZowee give-away on Tuesday, July 10, 2007 at 11:00 am in the David C. Cook booth at ICRS 2007. Fifteen stores will have an opportunity to win $10,000 worth of BOZ merchandise and VBS resources. Retailers and their families are encouraged to stop by the booth to meet BOZ, The Green Bear Next Door™ and have their pictures taken with him.
