“What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person.
Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
– Carl Sagan
Are you a scientist interested in writing a children’s book? A children’s writer who loves science? Want to learn how to write Children’s books? Our readers are fans of fun facts they can share with their friends and family, but many times they are also looking for an exciting story with a little bit of learning along the way. Tumblehome publishes children’s and YA adventure and mystery books that center around science themes.
Stories are the gateway to learning science. They help develop critical thinking skills, caress the logical mind and teach how systems are related. We embed science and historical context of the discovery/invention process into kid-friendly storylines. We truly believe in the globalization and sharing of knowledge that can help improve human society as a whole. We do this with exciting mystery and adventure tales as well as fun experiments carefully designed to engage students from Pre-K and up. At Tumblehome, we believe in the power of free-choice learning. Our mission is to make STEM learning an enjoyable adventure, without the stress of constant testing and school district accountability – to give kids freedom to learn when and how they choose. We work with authors to spread both knowledge and the message of inspiration to the next potential generation of scientists and engineers.
While Tumblehome does not offer courses in how to write children’s book, we do love first-time authors of kids’ science books. Tumblehome works closely with scientists/authors to mentor them in bringing science stories to children and as editor preparing their books for publication. Whether you have a compelling story ready for publication or just want or present scientific information in a way that will be accessible and engaging for young people, get in touch. We can probably help.
