2019-2020 Arrow & Boomerang Book Reveal: May 31
It’s that time of year when our families get a little nutty enthusiastic. They’re excited for good reason!
Each year at the end of May, I announce the new book titles for the coming academic year for our Arrow and Boomerang programs. These programs are designed to teach your kids the mechanics of writing through living literature!
The big reveal is exciting because these are:
- Books your family will read aloud together and treasure all year.
- Books that naturally teach writing mechanics and introduce literary elements.
Here at Brave Writer, we take the selection of these 20 book titles Very Seriously! All year, we read, discuss, and delight in the year’s latest fiction as well as relishing the classics.
We aim for diversity of authorship and protagonists.
We incorporate a variety of genres: fantasy to the classics.
We carefully orchestrate the sequence of the books.
- We balance book length against the holiday demands of a given month.
- We alternate moving, poignant books with silly, lighthearted books.
- We launch the year with a sure-fire winner and end with a warmhearted one.
By the time we’ve settled on a book list, we’re chomping at the bit to share it with you!
This year’s Arrow list is all brand new, and the Boomerang list features only two re-boots. You can expect a lively, inspired reading journey!
Come to the live reveal! It’s always a blast!
Be sure to have your kids tune in too—they love it!
Some families get together and throw a community party for the big book reveal.
We’ve got new surprises in store for this year’s books and subscriptions to the Arrow and Boomerang too, which we’ll share on book reveal day.
So are you IN? I hope so!
