Inklings Publishing publishes two anthology series. The Eclectic Writing Series is for general audience and centers around themes. The Perception Series is for children grades 3rd through 6th. Its purpose is to provide parents and educators texts they can use to springboard conversations on tough topics. As with all our children's books, this series contains questions and extension activities.
