S4E12: Developing Cultural Literacy & Empathy Through Books | with Sarita Holzmann

In 1989, homeschool curriculum programs were few and far between; parents had to assemble products piecemeal, and this problem was far worse overseas. However, Sarita Holzmann decided to help by creating book lists for parents living abroad and then shipping those books to them, all before Amazon and the modern Internet.   Fast-forward to present day: Sarita is the co-founder of successful homeschool curriculum brands Sonlight and Bookshark. The book selections are superb, and we especially enjoy the global focus.   In this episode, Sarita shares how books help expand a child’s perspective of the world and how she chooses the 300+ books she reviews each year.   You can download show notes for the podcast here: http://blog.bravewriter.com/category/podcasts/   Resources: Check out this brand new, free product designed to kickstart your writing program this school year: 7-Day Writing Blitz (and tag your creative young writers using #BWBlitz on Twitter & Instagram!)
