Nomad Press excels at getting kids to think about the past, the future, and today’s world.

For more than 20 years, Nomad Press has been trusted by teachers, parents, and librarians to bring tough topics, global issues, and fascinating history into a context for kids with our award-winning books.

Most of the hands-on activities and research projects in our books are designed for minimal adult guidance, so kids can be true independent learners. From designing a catapult to deconstructing the U.S. Constitution to diving deep into the meaning of race, Nomad Press books deliver thought-provoking experiences that last long after the last page has been turned.

No need to worry about your child falling behind—our books align with state and national standards, so you know your student will be on track to meet educational requirements.
