Press Release

Cincinnati’s own Julie Bogart is the popular voice of common sense and compassion for home educators. Her online coaching community, The Homeschool Alliance, her podcast, and her YouTube channel are lifelines for tens of thousands of weary homeschoolers all over the world. She is the creator of the award-winning, innovative online writing program called Brave Writer and the fast-growing weekly habit called Poetry Teatime.

Her new book, The Brave Learner, Finding Everyday Magic in Homeschool, Learning and Life to be released on February 5th, has already debuted at #1 in Parent Participation in Education and #1 in Homeschooling on opening day of pre-order on Amazon. Bogart will be hosting a book signing at Joseph-Beth Booksellers the evening of Tuesday, February 5th at 7:00 p.m.

Parents who are deeply invested in their children's education can be hard on both themselves and their kids. When exhausted parents are living the day-to-day grind, it can seem impossible to muster enough energy to make learning fun or interesting. How do parents nurture a love of learning amid childhood chaos, parental self-doubt, the flu, and state academic standards?

In her book, Bogart takes a joyful and accessible approach to homeschooling that harnesses children’s natural curiosity and makes learning a part of everyday life. She identifies twelve principles or “Superpowers” that help kids learn, which include the Four Forces of Enchantment, the Four Capacities for Learning and the Four Ports of Entry.

Says Bogart, “Not every parent is in the position to educate their children at home, nor do they want to. My book is written for ALL parents, and provides a hands-on approach with real-world examples that show parents how to make education an exciting, even enchanting, experience for their kids, whether they're in elementary or high school, and whether at home or in a traditional classroom setting.”

She continues, “Parents will learn how to incorporate surprise, mystery, risk and adventure in their family’s routine—each day at home and on nights and weekends—so that they create an environment that naturally grows a child’s love of learning. When we, as parents, incite a child’s curious spark, they approach life with curiosity, joy, and the courage to take learning risks.”

Each chapter includes practical activities and ideas that can be implemented right away. A few of the engaging educational activities that are illustrated in the book include: creating a “Continent of Learning” based upon your child’s passions, using perceptual tools such as microscopes, telescopes or kaleidoscopes to help your child see a “different point of view,” and creating a “Great Wall of Questions” filled with colorful sticky notes to research, discuss and answer as a family, as well as themed parties centered around different topics or subjects.

The book is available at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Cincinnati as well as several other retail locations, and also on Amazon.com and Apple Books. For more information, visit www.thebraverlearner.com. A bonus chapter, entitled Hard Cases, Q&A With Julie is also available those pre-ordering the digital edition.
