WRiTE BRAiN BOOKS is a company that offers products and classroom curricula that inspire kids of all ages to become authors of their own thoughtfully written children’s storybooks. Self-esteem is elevated within a “disguised learning” process that requires nothing more than a little commitment and a lot of creativity. Young people find their own voices as they give voices to the characters they bring to life on the pages of their WRiTE BRAiN BOOK. The WBB curricula are being implemented in schools and in after-school programs nationwide after only 18 months of presence at local and national edu-conferences and the retail line is launching now.
The WRiTE BRAiN Author’s Kit comprises everything any young person (or grown-up) would need to become an author of their own original children’s book, which will be PUBLISHED and shipped to their door! The kit includes: A richly illustrated, wordless book with lines on the pages for any author’s story – an Author’s Guide – one illustrated Story Card (with writing games) – one illustrated Story Mat – an Official Author’s Certificate – an encouraging note from author Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid) – one idea pad – a $5 OFF coupon for your next published book – one orange WRiTE BRAiN pencil – and a payment code for a professionally printed, perfect bound published book with the author’s photo and bio at the back! It is an exciting, imagination-generating experience that makes kids of all ages WANT to write! It’s also an incredible family engagement experience as parents and kids author short stories on mats, play story games with the cards, and write full children’s tales in the wordless books, together.
WRITE BRAIN’s Author’s Kit does much more than let aspiring authors write and publish their own children’s books. Everything about the way the kit is packaged and organized – the visuals, uniquely designed components, the step-by-step guidance that both moves the project forward and helps a young writer tap into his or her creativity – provides encouragement and inspiration to authors of all ages. The Storyline Planning Chart helps kids organize ideas for the beginning, middle, and end of their books, and a Snapshots Chart helps authors use rich descriptions to set the stage for their characters, which are developed using the Character Development Chart. Once a final draft is ready to go, simply log in to writebrainbooks.com to enter and publish your book. The kit’s price includes one glossy, perfect bound, professionally printed soft cover book delivered to your door, with the option of upgrading to hardcover for a mere $5.00 more.
Meredith Scott Lynn, the company’s founder & CEO, sees “a world in which young people are making fewer connections; not just to other people, but also to big picture and holistic concepts, dreams for their future, and to their own ideas. They are so often anxious and distracted, thus developing fast-processing skills at the expense of slow processing skills, which support the development of attributes such as empathy and compassion. Kids spend an average of 74 hours per week on a digital device of some kind. This overwhelms their minds and provides immediate, though most often substance-less gratification. They are auto-corrected at every turn, think less and less for themselves, and soon won’t know how to sign their own name.”
The interactive Book Builder on the WRiTE BRAiN BOOKS website offers a fun, digital book-publishing experience that satisfies that digital interest without being the main focus of the experience. WRiTE BRAiN BOOKS are not only game-changers…they’re brain changers. A percentage of all sales helps to fund WRiTE BRAiN GiVES, a 501c3 that provides our program and materials to underserved youth and communities.
“Having been an award-winning storyteller as a child, I found my voice. I found it and others heard it. I developed a sense of self and understood the value of my expression, as it was often met with a positive response. That is what kids (and grown-ups) of all ages need – to be heard -and to know that what they have to say, however they choose to communicate it, lands on interested, curious, or welcoming ears. Manifesting a product line that activates and inspires young people to develop and value fundamental skills such as writing, connecting, investigating, elaborating, mentoring, listening, reading, presenting, collaborating, and creating…well it’s the most important thing I’ll ever do, which is why every single lesson plan in the classroom and every product in our developing line has my full heart and mind’s attention 24/7.” – Meredith
