January 2019 Arrow Book Club
The Arrow Book Club for January 2019 is starting soon! It’s hard to believe that December is almost halfway over already, but January will be here sooner than you know it, and we at Brave Writer want to make sure you don’t miss out on the January Arrow Book Club.
If you’re looking for an easy way into online classes for your child, our book clubs are great for that! Kids love “talking” (a.k.a. writing) about books. In these Brave Writer classes, they will be able to discuss the books freely with instructor guidance and encouragement.
Also a FREE digital copy of our language arts guide based on the book is provided.

January’s Arrow Book Club selection is Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleanor Coerr.
Hiroshima-born Sadako is an active, full-of-life athlete until she falls ill with leukemia. Legend holds that if a sick person folds one thousand paper cranes, they will regain their health. Sadako takes up the challenge with courage and bravery. Based on a true story, this short, classic tale will touch your heart.

The Arrow Book Club provides an online discussion space (asynchronous, bulletin board style) for students to learn to discuss literature using literary analysis vocabulary without the pressure of writing “essays.” Homeschool students especially need the chance to talk about what they read—-yet the busy mother-of-many doesn’t always have time to take the discussion to a written form.
Let Brave Writer help you. These book discussions are drawn from entertaining works of fiction that your kids are sure to love!
Caveat: Please remember that you’re the parent. If you have doubts about the content of a particular book, please check the reviews of the novel or read it for yourself first.
