The Mailbox Books publishes materials for teachers of preschool through grade 6. Our books feature creative, practical activities and developmentally appropriate reproducibles to reinforce early childhood concepts and key skills in language arts, math, science, and social studies. We also publish books that feature bulletin board ideas, arts-and-crafts activities, learning centers, and classroom management tips and tools.
The first question to ask yourself is, Is this a book I hope to write, or do I simply want to suggest the topic?
If the answer is that you just want to suggest the topic, that's easy! Send an email to Becky Andrews, Director of Book Planning and Development.
If this is a book that you hope to write, follow these steps:
Be sure to send your complete contact information, including your home address, phone number, and email address, along with an SASE with sufficient postage so that we can return your submission if necessary.
All materials must be your original, unpublished work. Please do not send previously published materials. Also do not send your original copy.
Our book development team will review your material and consider the following:
If our book development team thinks that your proposal could fit into our publishing plan, one of several things will happen: The team may request more information or additional sample pages. We may ask you to consider additional factors and rework the proposal, or we may ask to test or purchase your concept. All concepts are purchased outright. We do not pay royalties. All rights (copyrights or otherwise) become the property of The Education Center, Inc. Please allow three to six months for a reply. We appreciate your patience.
Thanks for your interest in helping us make a difference in children’s learning. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
