Parents, caregivers, and educators looking to foster a love of reading in young people may want to check out Brightly. Launched in 2015, Brightly aims to provide resources to help adults "raise kids who love to read," and also "to keep kids connected to books through every age and stage of life." Visitors have several options for exploring the site's content beyond the most recent articles on its main page. Under Ages & Stages, visitors can begin by selecting the age group that best fits their audience, where they can then peruse Brightly's "book picks, reading tips, and activities," for that age group. Visitors can also browse Brightly by Popular Topics, which includes numerous lists of book recommendations along with categories such as Educator Resources; DIY and Family Activities; Parenting and Advice; and Science and STEM. While Brightly focuses primarily on books for younger readers, it also brings adults along for the ride with a monthly roundup of the Best Grown-Up Reads. Brightly was co-founded by Amanda Close and Christine McNamara, who are both veterans of the publishing industry and parents of young children, in partnership with Penguin Random House.
