Lyric Power Publishing LLC is proud to announce the arrival of four new books! Here at LPP we love weaving science into adventure tales and rhyming books. We love colorful, exciting illustrations. We hope you will enjoy three wonderful new additions to our book catalog and a special guest listing for Ricky Ricordi.
When Lorenzo finds an iguana in his garden, he has fun bonding with his new
pet, but soon realizes that the animal belongs in the wild.
Lyric Power Publishing, along with John Binns of the IRCF, recently assisted Dominican children’s author Nelia Barletta in the publication of the English version of her book about Ricky Ricordi. The delightful illustrations were created by Argentinian artist/children’s illustrator Juan Manuel Moreno. The English version is now available on Amazon.com.
Once a year I travel to an “exotic” location–not to play, but to work with the IUCN, the International Union for Conservation of Nature, for iguana conservation. The IUCN is a democratic union comprised of influential organizations, both governmental and public, and top conservation experts, in a combined effort to conserve nature and enable sustainable development. There are more than 1300 member organizations and more than 15,000 experts. These members make the IUCN the global authority on the status of the natural world and what is needed to protect it.
I am thrilled to be part of this organization and hope I contribute in my own small way to the important work they do. Their website: https://www.iucn.org/.
Another important organization for the worldwide protection of wildlife is CITES, The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. CITES publishes a voluntary international agreement that provides a framework for the parties to adopt their own domestic national legislation. So far, 183 parties have joined together. More information is available at: https://www.cites.org/eng/.
Thirty fun pages all about iguanas!
NOTE: Iguanas are among my very favorite animals because of their intelligence, strength, and when domesticated, their affection toward their caretakers. Their personalities are fascinating and unique, and sometimes I think they can read minds! To learn more about these amazing reptiles, please enjoy our comprehensive workbook and activity sheets, My Unit Study on Iguanas.

Welcome to Lyric Power Publishing, where we believe children’s books should be educational and entertaining. Our illustrations are unusual in the children’s book marketplace: They are vivid—to attract the reader to both the written word and the fascinating world of science. Science is interesting and fun when presented in delightful rhymes or engaging adventures, No dry text books here! But don’t think these stories are only for children. Our fan mail indicates adults enjoy them equally and have also gained new knowledge.
We may be a small publisher, but we have a mighty mission: Science education should not be boring! To that end, in addition to our fun, science-based books in print, we have developed our own activity sheets and bundled them into 12 to 47-page study-units. Our affordable, printable activity sheets, workbooks, flannel-boards and standups for Grades K-5 provide creative and fun opportunities to learn about ecology, reptiles, birds, mammals, habitats, predators and prey, plants, rocks, maps and directions. They include coloring pages and lessons on anatomy, life-cycles, crossword puzzles, cut-and-paste, word searches, spelling, vocabulary, math, and story-writing, and more.
Wouldn’t your children rather count iguanas or bats than apples and oranges? Our workbooks can be viewed at the Workbooks tab and are downloaded to be printed and used as many times as you’d like.
We hope you will enjoy all there is to see on the Lyric Power Publishing website. You can meet our authors and illustrators under the Home tab and see our books at the Our Books tab.

Everyone knows that parents are their child’s first teachers. From teaching them how to say mommy or daddy, to counting on their toes, to learning how to walk, parents are the most important teachers of children. As kids grow into adults, they still look to their parents for guidance. On November 8, we’re celebrating that relationship.
While parents are teaching their children, they should include science. After all, November 8 is also National STEM/STEAM Day. Don’t know what those letters stand for? STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering Math. Education in these four areas is critical for the future. STEAM includes the equally important Arts, including humanities, language arts, dance, drama, music, visual arts, design and new media.
At Lyric Power Publishing, LLC, we encourage both kinds of learning, investigative and creative, and we like to make learning fun! Check out our books here and our workbooks here, and enjoy learning about science!
38 Pages of Turtle Facts, Traits, Diet, Survival, Label the Parts, True or False, Cut and Paste, Reading Comprehension, Color by Math, Write the Differences, Vocabulary, Word Definitions, Cause and Effect and More!
When I have a subject for a children’s book, the first thing I have to decide is what type of book it will be. If the book is for students who have some ability to read on their own, I think an adventure tale is best. This was the case for my Clarissa Catfish book above, which is set in the Peoria (IL) Riverfront Museum. Clarissa Catfish Visits the Peoria Riverfront Museum tells the story of Clarissa’s arrival at the museum, the friends she meets, and of the man who wants to eat her! Clarissa escapes being cooked just by the “hairs of her chinny chin chin!” and it’s all very exciting.
The sequel takes place in the Peoria Playhouse Children’s Museum. Most of the clients at this museum are of the preschool age, so an adventure story would be too advanced. Thus, the sequel will be a picture book–with rhyming text, of course! I hope this book most conveys the incredible museum with its many fun activities. I think they should have a grownups’ night. I want to play, too!
Lyric Power Publishing is pleased to be the publisher of Queen of the Night: The Night-Blooming Cereus by Elaine A. Powers and illustrated by Nicholas Thorpe.
