Brightly's 50 Best Books for 9-and-10-Year-Olds +GIVEAWAY

I have been a fan of the website Brightly for awhile now.  If you haven't checked it out you should.  And I encourage you to sign up to receive their emails as well. They do NOT over spam you at all! It's just a great website full of book lists, activities to do with books and help for parents who want to get their kids reading more.  

When they sent me an email about their latest page I loved it! I teach this age group now, so I love that this is a great list I can send them to.  This list was put together by a group of  children's literature experts.  It's fantastic.  And I really like that it's also arranged by genre.  Makes it super easy for kids (and parents) to find good books they think they'll like.

You need to check out this list.  You can find it HERE.  

Two of my favorites on the list are:

A Tale Dark and Grimm by Adam Gidwitz

Three Times Lucky by Shelia Turnage

Brightly has offered up a giveaway for my readers!

Up for grabs:
Brightly tote bag
Two books from the list

US addresses only
At least 13

a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. Thanks for the Brightly tip. That is a great list. I am always looking for books for my granddaughter. And thanks for the giveaway.

  2. I loved Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM. My niece is more into things like The Graveyard Book.
