Ole, the Toronto-based music publisher, continues to be hungry for acquisitions as it just bought a stake in the music catalog of Cookie Jar Entertainment, a producer of children's TV programming and consumer products.

In a separate deal, Ole has signed an administration pact with Scholastic Media, a division of children's publishing and education company Scholastic. Under that deal, ole will administer Scholastic's music publishing properties outside of the United States.

The Cookie Jar and Scholastic deals expand ole's position in children's programming. In February, ole purchased a 75% ownership interest in music rights of PBS affiliate WGBH Boston, which also produced children's programming as well as other documentary lifestyle shows.
