Which short stories will be read in that book?
Jennifer Richards

where do we find the info on the website on how to do Arrow books in a Boomerang style?
Dawn Smith
58:11
For this Boomerang, we’ll focus on . . .“The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky” by Stephen Crane“A Pair of Silk Stockings” by Kate Chopin“Paul’s Case” by Willa Cather“The Egg” by Sherwood Anderson

Will the adult slingshot book discussion follow the schedule of the slingshots as they're released...?
Kayce Sisson
58:49
Awesome, thanks
Sky Sanchez

Slingshot and HFHS, SOLD!
Michele Bicking
59:16
Great book lists as always! Can’t wait to read these!
Dawn Smith
59:31
Check the Arrow or Boomerang Guidelines for help adapted to different levels. If you are in the Brave Learner Home, check the coaching notebook for my webinar about adapting the different levels.
Heather Hitchcock
59:34
Yay Sky! I love talking H4HS and can’t wait to see the new Slingshot!
Becky Czerwonka
59:49
Do we get the books and the download ?
Ruth Richards
59:59
do you have to purchase the annual sub for slingshot to be a part of the adult discussion?
Gavi Wyatt
01:00:03
are the parent book discussions on Zoom too? Newbie here.
Dawn Smith
01:00:17
Brave Writer does not provide the books.
Heather Hitchcock
01:00:20
Just the download, Becky. Books are purchased separately wherever you like purchasing your books
Sally Vance
01:00:27
link above to slingshot won't open
Jen Liguori
01:00:30
Is there a video or post that shows the difference between a boomerang guide vs a slingshot guide?
Sky Sanchez
01:00:43
Oh yay, Heather! I’m so excited for this fall already! Summer reading is here (and I’m here for it!!!!) but now we can look forward to more joy!
Bernadette Brophy
01:00:43
Or borrowing from library!
Dawn Smith
01:00:44
The Slingshot page should be up and ready right after the book reveal
Kayce Sisson
01:00:56
Huge dilemma. Now that I've seen both reveals, I want to buy all of them. Slingshot, Boomerang, Arrow, and Dart. EVERY SINGLE ONE. We're gonna need more hours in the day, haha.
Jen Liguori
01:01:06
Ah, that makes sense
Leslie
01:01:28
Would you ever consider adding a live zoom chat for kids to discuss the books with peers? Like at the end of the month? Like a book club meeting.
Sky Sanchez
01:01:35
Kayce, Isn’t that the truth!
Dawn Smith
01:01:47
That’s awesome to hear, Kayce!
Sky Sanchez
01:01:47
Thank you, Dawn!
Michele Bicking
01:01:47
Kayce- Same! I want to read them all!
Karen Siegfried
01:01:50
Kayce, I know the feeling!
Becky Czerwonka
01:01:53
hi Sky
Tristan RowLee
01:01:57
Kayce - I have kids in all the ages, so I will probably end up doing all of them...lol.
Sky Sanchez
01:02:09
Hiiii Becky!
Kayce Sisson
01:02:19
It's a good problem to have, but MAN. It takes forever to read this stuff out loud with these busy boys of mine!
Dawn Smith
01:02:28
The Here Wee Read link will be up by end of day today!
Heather Hitchcock
01:02:41
Kayce, audiobooks in the car as an option?
christy kafka
01:02:42
Oh, I love that shop option!
Lindsay WIlson
01:02:42
LOVE that hereweread will be featured. She is great.
Chanda Dardar
01:02:54
That is so awesome!
Suzanne Tayal
01:02:55
Any advice on read aloud vs. asking teen to read (and I read separately)?
Gavi Wyatt
01:02:56
so we get all the downloads the month before the books? I've seen some that print and spiral bind so I was wondering so I can prep.
Tristan RowLee
01:03:09
Thank you Julie! Thanks Dawn!
Sky Sanchez
01:03:11
I get that, Kayce. I have wide ranges of ages and allll the books. I’m gonna need to figure this out.
Gavi Wyatt
01:03:13
sorry, before each book?
Sara Starnes
01:03:20
I currently have Brave Learner on audio that I have been listening too and I love your website and I hope to join you with either slingshot or boomerang before June 16th. I wish I had the money to join today. Thank you so much for doing this.

Any advice on read aloud vs. asking teen to read (and I read separately)?
Tristan RowLee
01:03:44
Sky - sometimes we alternate by month, older and then younger.
Dawn Smith
01:03:47
Work with your teen on how to go about the reading. I have one teen who likes to read separately and another that likes to read aloud together.
Kayce Sisson
01:03:53
Heather - We love audio too, but don't spend enough time in the car these days to make it work. I guess we'll need to plan more road trips. Twist my arm.....
Rebecca Pickens
01:04:03
You'll receive the new guide the first day of the month.
Heather Hitchcock
01:04:09
Sara, we are so excited you’ll be joining us! Anything happening before the 16th will be in our video archives for you to watch as you can.
Leslie
01:04:15
I am newer to podcasts - Julie is like my morning coffee to set my mind right while I get ready for the day :)
Jennifer Vollmers
01:04:18
My teens and I read separately and discuss together.
Heather Hitchcock
01:04:27
Touch choices, Kayce. LOL
Heather Hitchcock
01:04:35
*tough
Dawn Smith
01:04:45
We also listen to a lot of audiobooks! My teens love them as much as I do!
Kayce Sisson
01:04:46
Heather -- FOMO is real. MUST DO ALL THE THINGS. Ha!
Kayce Sisson
01:04:55
Thank you Julie!!! <3
Amy Macedo
01:04:56
Thank you!!!
Sky Sanchez
01:04:56
Good idea, Tristan. We need to get back to car rides for more audio. We usually read three books at a time (more on their own) but as a family so we can hit all the stages.
Jennifer Horton
01:04:58
Thank you!
