At Brightly, we believe reading has the power to illuminate kids’ lives. But we also know how hard it can be to connect kids with the right books at the right time and keep them engaged with reading as they grow. We want to make it a little easier, and a lot more fun, for parents and educators to raise children who love to read. That’s why we started Brightly.

Founded in 2014 by a small team of passionate bookworms and parents, Brightly is a resource to help moms, dads, and educators grow lifelong readers. Launched in partnership with Penguin Random House, the Webby-nominated website features book recommendations from all publishers for every age and stage, reading tips and insights, seasonal inspirations, author essays, contests, gift guides, and more. We’re thrilled to explore the wild and wonderful world of children’s books and reading and hope you’ll join us on our journey.
