ABOUT BOUNDLESS BOOKS
Boundless Books is a book writing program designed to cultivate creativity and teambuilding in elementary classrooms. Founded by local radio personality and children’s book author, Mark Eischen, the program consists of six to eight visits that take place over a six week period. During that time, Mr. Eischen guides the students through the production of their own professionally published children’s book. The students develop a storyline, create original characters, draw all the illustrations and eventually publish their own full color book. During the final classroom visit, each student receives a copy of the book, in which they are fully accredited in text and in the author’s picture.
The book is then available for purchase at amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and other online retailers. All profits from the sale of the book go directly to the school. They can be used as a fundraising tool, a donation to help others in the community or an end of year pizza party.
A pilot program was introduced at the Syracuse Latin School in 2017, during the 2nd and 3rd grade summer program. “Max’s Dream to Save the Team” was published in August, 2017.
Since that time, Boundless Books has worked with classes at AA Gates Elementary (Port Byron, NY) and Walberta Park Primary School (Syracuse, NY) to publish their own books as well.
