It’s no secret that I am a huge advocate of reading aloud and literacy. Over the fast few years I have watched my children develop a love of reading and literacy. I’ve also noticed their increased vocabulary and watched them make connections in the world through books. It’s truly amazing to see how far they have come in such a short period of time! That’s why I’m always thrilled when I get the opportunity to spread the word about reading, books and valuable resources like Brightly!
I first learned about Brightly two years ago when they emerged on the scene while doing an online search for children’s books. Naturally, I was immediately intrigued by heir content. Brightly is a site that helps parents raise kids who love to read. It’s is a wonderful resource from Penguin Random House that features book recommendations from all publishers for every age and stage, reading tips, author essays, and more.
Most recently, Brightly created a page on the site called, Back to School Essentials, which includes books for kids at every age level (Pre-K through High School), plus tips for parents to get back into the school groove. I’m sure you’ll agree, Brightly has a lot to offer when it comes to getting your family ready for back to school. Broken down by age and stage, our Back to School Essentials contains:
- Tips and advice to learn what your kids’ teacher wishes you’d do at home, survive the ‘learning to read’ phase, and manage the dinnertime craze.
- Printables and fun learning activities.
Are you excited yet? Also, if you’re not already signed up to receive Brightly’s newsletter, I’d highly recommend that you do. They deliver book recommendations and reading tips right to your inbox!
