February 2019 Pouch Book Club

Brave Writer 2019 Feb Pouch Book Club

It seems like yesterday it was still 2018, but February is fast approaching along with the latest Pouch Book Club. Make sure you snag your child’s spot now before classes fill!

If I could host you all in my cozy living room for book discussion, I would. Instead, Brave Writer provides you a virtual living room space—where students gather to freely discuss the novels they read with you at home. We’ve created a secure environment where kids gather and are guided by a discussion facilitator who helps these kids take their answers deeper. Instead of talking out loud, your kids will use a keyboard and transcribe their thoughts into writing—the kind you can print and save, read again and consider.

Also a FREE digital copy of our language arts guide based on the book selection for the month is provided.

February’s selection for the Pouch Book Club (ages 11-14) is The Endless Steppe by Esther Hautzig.

In June 1942, the Rudomin family is arrested by the Russians. They are “capitalists—enemies of the people.” Forced from their home and friends in Vilna, Poland, they are herded into crowded cattle cars. Their destination: the endless steppe of Siberia. For five years, Ester and her family live in exile, weeding potato fields and working in the mines, struggling for enough food and clothing to stay alive. Only the strength of family sustains them and gives them hope for the future.—Amazon

Due to popular demand, Brave Writer now offers a transition book club between the Arrow and Boomerang. The Pouch club is for middle schoolers who want to discuss novels with their peers, who are ready to learn the art of thinking and writing simultaneously all while excited about a great story!

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. Pouch and Boomerang books in particular may include sexuality, graphic language, and mature themes.

Also starting in February are our Arrow and Boomerang Book Clubs.
