Editorial Mission | Brightly ShopContact

We believe reading has the power to illuminate kids’ lives and connect families by facilitating a space in which children and the adults in their lives can spend quality time together. But we also know how hard it can be to find the right book to keep children engaged as they grow. That’s where Brightly comes in.


Brightly provides passionate parents, educators, and caregivers with the tools they need — such as tips and advice, book recommendations, Brightly Storytime, which features read-aloud and flip along videos, and more — to keep kids connected to books through every age & stage of life. We take pride in working with a diverse group of contributors, authors, and partners who cover a wide range of topics for readers of all ages in order to cultivate a love of books and reading in children.


Over the years, countless readers have come to us searching for gifts for the young bookworms in their lives. While it’s always been our mission to provide content that offers great book recommendations, your feedback has helped us realize the value of a more browsable, store-like experience.

The Brightly Shop helps take the guesswork out of finding exceptional book gifts for kids by offering a diverse collection of age-appropriate titles for kids ages 0 – 8, filterable by a variety of interest topics. Whether you’re looking for a baby shower gift, birthday present, or just want to treat the child in your life to a great book, each title in the Shop is hand-selected by our editorial team — with more added every week  to bring you a highly-curated book buying experience.
