BackPax titles books, authentic on-location audiojourneys, and innovative games  
are wondrous adventures for the child who's going places . . .

BackPax was dubbed "publishers to the thinking child" by a focus group father and fan.  Here's why:

Exciting topics:
From outer space to subter-ranean worlds, BackPax titles are meticulously researched and recorded on the actual locations. Even on the moon, thanks to our friends at NASA!


Unique format:
Our book and audios sets are unique.  What's best for flights of imagination is on the audio. For further exploration, the book blends articles, maps, folklore, puzzles and more. 


Superbly done:
Prized for
innovative concepts and dramatic storytelling, BackPax has received numerous awards. 


And, what's in a name?
For adventure, think of a backpack. For a commitment to children and their world, think pax (Latin, for peace). For quality children's media, think BackPax audios, books, and games for the child who’s going places.
