An Introduction to WRiTE BRAiN
Young Author’s Event

COMPANY OVERVIEW

WRiTE BRAiN BOOKS is a children’s educational and retail product start-up. The core products are richly illustrated, wordless children’s books, with lines on the pages, for anyone’s original story. Our books enable kids of all ages to author their own stories, publish beautiful hardcover copies, and build a personal library of self-authored books.

Kids today are constantly overloaded and over-stimulated. Their experiences are shared instantly and forgotten quickly while their responses are automatic and auto-corrected. They text, type, scroll, and swipe while handwriting becomes a thing of our past. Kids' brains are being forced to develop fast-processing skills at the expense of vital slow-processing skills such as critical thinking and creating connections. This is where WRiTE BRAiN comes in. Watch this 13 second video.


Company offers K-12, standards-aligned curricula and educational products purchased by schools and organizations from us directly, as well as retail products available online at WriteBrainbooks.com, Barnes & Noble (9/1/16), Marbles- The Brain Store, and at specialty toy & gift shops nationwide.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

WRiTE BRAiN BOOKS are illustrated, wordless books with lines on the pages, ready for writers (ages 5 to 105) to create their own stories. All of WRiTE BRAiN’S products feature the work of emerging artists whose illustrations were handpicked for their powerful imagery and open-ended visual narratives, for which young authors create written narratives.

TESTIMONIALS

"As the 2015 NJ State Teacher of the Year, I take my role in elevating students' education very seriously. I am a tough critic of curricula and instructional strategies implemented in our classrooms. I am not inspired by most of what educators are required to teach these days. I think it's quite possible that the WRiTE BRAiN BOOKS K-12 curricula is a perfect supplement to literally any literacy program, and an excellent stand-alone program where one is needed. When implemented with fidelity, Write Brain is the vehicle to ensure student engagement, ownership, and academic achievement. I believe that this curriculum is the missing link in education as a whole."
Mark Mautone, 2015 NJ State Teacher of the Year

"WBB is, HANDS-DOWN, the BEST literacy curriculum available for our youth. Notice I didn't qualify that statement with "afterschool." It is beyond exceptional for afterschool programs, but is just as powerful and dynamic in the in-school, classroom learning environment. The positive impact of this curriculum for students, educators, parents, and communities is off the charts!”
Brent Cummings, 21st CCLC Program Director, Walla Walla Public Schools

“In the United States there are currently about 28 million children who are participating in structured, publicly and privately funded, after school programs, who attend every day. That is 91 days of additional learning opportunities these kids have.”

“Write Brain, I am absolutely confident, can make all the difference in helping these kids succeed, improving the quality of programs of learning, and can take us to the next level. It’s about collaboration...about students learning to work together in valuable ways. It’s about unleashing the creativity that all young people possess, but which is often stifled due limited opportunities to express themselves in ways that are meaningful and relevant to them”

“I know it is going to change the world!”
Dr. Andi Fletcher

“When you ask kids to use their own voice, and ask them to speak for themselves…what they are willing to share. The things that kids will say when you ask them and take the time to listen is extraordinary.”

“We won’t get there with a culture of one right answer.”
Diana Laufenberg, Educator

“One picture, one image, can evoke and inspire anybody to write a story, and to have a WRiTE BRAIN book to facilitate that, would be a gift.”
Ruby Fuller, 6th Grade Teacher

“Slow process is where important things happen: judgment, empathy, reflection, and values.”
Robin Lithgow, Former Head of LAUSD Arts Program

"There's no wrong, there's no 'you failed' when you're writing a Write Brain Book. It's always, 'it's your book, your creation, you did a really good job'."
Stella Chesnut, 10-year-old Write Brain Author

“If you offered them tomorrow the opportunity to work on another WRiTE BRAiN BOOK or play a computer game, I believe the vast majority of kids in this room would choose a Write Brain book, and I see that as kind of miraculous!”
Monique Marshall, 2nd Grade Teacher
