Welcome to the Nutcracker Publishing Company.
At Nutcracker Publishing Company we are melting down with excitement as we present (Mom’s Choice Award Recipient) Nuclear Power—How a Nuclear Power Plant Really Works!
Our book is an educational and entertaining look at the inner workings of a nuclear power plant. It offers parents and educators an opportunity to teach children about nuclear energy in a fun and informative way without boring them to sleep, or as nuclear expert Dr. Theodore Rockwell put it- “scaring them witless.”
We never imagined that a nuclear emergency would once again make nuclear power plants front page news. However, even before the nuclear crisis in Japan, we understood that a children’s book about nuclear energy would be a controversial topic.
What’s all the fuss about? What makes a nuclear power plant nu-cle-ar? We seek to dispel fear by providing information.
Our small independent company originated in order to publish Tickles Tabitha’s Cancer-tankerous Mommy, a children’s book about a family coping with cancer.
When the book was published in 2001, cancer was considered a niche topic, and talking to young children about the issues pertaining to it were not always met with enthusiasm.
The Nutcracker Publishing Company was founded to publish a contentious niche topic that others rejected.
Today, Tickles Tabitha’s Cancer-tankerous Mommy is considered recommended reading for families coping with cancer by literary and health care professionals across the country, and has been featured by media such as: The Rosie O Donnell Show, ABC, Fox, CBS, MSNBC Today’s First Person, and the syndicated lifestyle and entertainment show Daytime.
Whether it is about cancer or nuclear power plants, we believe our books make it easier to establish a dialogue, as they educate and entertain, both children and adults.
