We thought you’d like to know about Brightly, a website designed to help parents foster a love of literacy in their children.
In 2014, “a small team of passionate bookworms and parents” founded Brightly “to make it a little easier, and a lot more fun, for parents to raise children who love to read.” The site features tips and advice, easy-to-reference posts tailored to different ages and stages, book recommendations, author essays, and more.
For example, check out this great post by Devon Corneal for a list of six tips on How to Read Books Like a Mom. Or this one, by Janssen Bradshaw, suggesting simple ways to build a robust library for your child on a tight budget. Here’s a list, curated by Melissa Taylor, of 18 books with diverse characters. There are even posts addressing what to do if your child doesn’t like to read and a category on “grown-up reads.”
