Any lesson about ESCHAR Publications has to chronicle our history. Founded in 1988, our company began with the basic premise that it could provide books and workshops to help parents in their quest for ways to improve their children's academic performance. By 1994, we realized a growing need to provide African-American children's literature.
Founder, Vivian Owens, organized ESCHAR Publications as a single-author publishing company. However, in 1992, we made an exception when we published "A WOMAN'S LIFE" by Tarney G. Tarry. Through the years, the company has served in an advisory capacity to assist other writers in starting their own publishing houses.
Today, ESCHAR Publications remains a small business, mostly publishing children's literature and educational books and materials. In addition to our own website, ESCHAR books can be found on Amazon, and we branched into publishing a few eBooks on Amazon Kindle. Several of our books have received recognition as "Resources in Education." Children's literature, "Nadanda The Wordmaker," won a Best Book Award from Writer's Digest the year it was published. Our book, "Parenting for Education: Revised Edition," won awards from Mom's Choice Awards and from the Florida Authors and Publishers Association.
Our excitement grows for our new books, "The Man Who Hid Christmas in a Shoebox" and "Create a Math Environment: Revised Edition." We are happy that you have chosen to read our books.
