A Bright Place to Connect with Books: BRIGHTLY

Brightly is an ambitious project to help moms and dads raise lifelong readers.  Created by parents and avid bookworms, the effort is a partnership with Penguin Random House. The site is filled with book recommendations, reading tips, author essays and much more.

It’s easy to find what you want under the AGES AND STAGES menu where the categories range from Baby & Toddler through Teen. I focused on the TWEEN (9-12) category and found many helpful articles:

THE 50 BEST BOOKS FOR 9- AND 10-YEAR-OLDS

7 OF THE BEST BOOKS ABOUT BULLYING, ACCORDING TO KIDS

READING STRATEGIES AND BOOK SUGGESTIONS FOR STRUGGLING READERS

ONE STEP AT A TIME: 13 BOOKS ABOUT BLENDED FAMILIES

The information provided is helpful for parents, teachers and librarians. The team at Brightly will even take suggestions as to what you want to see on the site. You can also sign up with your email and receive weekly book recommendations, reading tips, and seasonal inspirations.

Take a look at Brightly, it will be time well spent.
