Highlights for Children, Inc.

  • Overview
Need help finding the hidden picture? Highlights for Children publishes Highlights, a children's magazine with a circulation of more than two million. Highlights targets children ages six to 12. It is delivered to homes, schools, and libraries, and remains a staple of doctors' and dentists' office waiting rooms throughout the country. Highlights for Children also operates six book clubs, including Hidden Pictures Playground, Puzzlemania, and Mathmania, which send kids a new kit or pair of books in the mail every four to six weeks. The company also produces a line of games and puzzles. Highlights for Children was founded in 1946 by husband-and-wife team Dr. Garry Cleveland Myers and Caroline Clark Myers.

Keeping up with the times, Highlights for Children has expanded beyond its print publishing roots to launch digital operations, including HighlightsKids.com, HighlightsParents.com, and HighlightsTeachers.com. In 2011 it brought its games and puzzles to the iPad and other mobile tablets through downloadable apps. And in 2010 the company signed licensing deals with four companies (Discovery Bay Games, Trends International, Horizon Group USA, and Ravensburger USA) to create games, crafts, puzzles, and calendars with the Highlight "Fun with a Purpose" brand.

The company expanded its print publishing offerings through the launch of a new magazine title for an early childhood audience, Highlights High Five. The magazine features short stories, poems, puzzles, and pictures. The company assumes adults or older siblings will read the content aloud to pre-readers and beginning readers, ages 2 to 6.

The firm also owns subsidiary Zaner-Bloser, which publishes handwriting and spelling programs for students.  In addition to its headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, Highlights for Children maintains editorial offices in Honesdale, Pennsylvania.
