Eschar Publications provides quality books with timeless appeal. Our books inspire, motivate, and entertain. We believe that each child and each parent are important, and we offer books that nurture creativity, cultural understanding and intellect.
One thing that helps a child to develop a fondness for reading is the feeling that she could be the main characters in her favorite books. Children enjoy re-imagining their own world and exploring different life experiences. And people all over the world enjoy African American music, food, art and history, but many have not had access to them through children’s literature. For this reason, we publish books focused on African American culture.
Nadanda The Wordmaker, which won a “Best Book Award”, is the story of an intellectually versatile fourteen year-old girl who invents strange words as a means of fitting in with the most popular school cliques. To her surprise, and to her mother’s horror, her words do have meanings that plunge them through winding paths of mystery and suspense.
Our latest book, PARENTING FOR EDUCATION: Revised Edition, brings helpful ideas to parents and others who provide care for children. Focused on education and learning, many topics emphasize strategies that improve chances of raising performance levels in reading, math, and test-taking.
We invite you to read our books and to share them with all the children you know. Several of our books, including the parent-helpers, are great for adults. As you visit, please read our monthly column on "Parenting for Education" and introduce it to your family, friends, and colleagues. Thanks for visiting!
