Although it affects an estimated 1 in 68 kids in the U.S., many people still don’t fully understand autism. When Brightly reader Jackie Bielinski learned her grandson was on the spectrum, she took pen to paper and wrote the poem “I Am Special Just Like You” in support of him and others diagnosed as having autism. We were touched when she shared her poem with us and we, in turn, are honored to share this excerpt with you.

Best part of my day? I should probably say sth like “watching my kids play” or “decorating the Christmas tree with my family” ... Yada yada yada! It was actually those 15 minutes at noon while kids were sleeping with chocolate by my side 😋 Seeing my boys in bed and with a book like here on the pic also qualified 🤓#justhuman #momlife #bedtimestories #reading #readbrightly

My child has apparently evolved to the point of not requiring sleep. I've been somewhat on the brink of insanity. But she made it better today when she opened a book and started, "Chapter 12: Find Papa! Belle! Beast's castle!" #bookworm #beautyandthebeast #readbrightly #adlib #narration

FEATURE 💜📚 Little masked readers sharing Books About Books, thanks to @homegrownreader and @gingerfoxstylings.

We absolutely adored this month’s @kidlitpicks theme: Books about Books. I had to sneak in another book we just recently discovered: WANTED! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar by Emily MacKenzie. Ralfy loves books so much that he starts stealing them. But he meets his match with fellow book lover, Arthur. After being caught red-handed, Ralfy is introduced to the wonder that is the library. A story every bibliophile can relate to.
.

This is Sadie, written by Sara O'Leary and illustrated by Julie Morstad, is one of our favorite #booksaboutbooks. It's about the impact of books and stories on an imaginative little girl. Through books, she's able to live a multitude of lives and experience never-ending magic. Love the book, and love this little fox mask, a perfect match for little Miss Sadie.
.

If you’re crazy about books, then you need to check out both of these reads, enchanting in their own way, and the accounts that recommended them @homegrownreader and @gingerfoxstylings. #kidlitpicks_books

Did You Take the B from my _ook? by Beck & Matt Stanton is a book that begs to be read aloud. Kids cannot help but engage with this hilarious story.  An unseen narrator informs the reader that she loves things that start with the letter “B”. When the narrator sneezes unknowingly blowing the “B” out of the book, the fun really starts.  She goes on, “I love my _ed” where kids will of course yell out, “bed” causing the narrator to respond, “Yeah, that’s what I said. Am I saying it wrong?” The silliness continues in this manner until the narrator requests the reader shout for the “B” to come back.

This book is perfect for teaching the letter “B”. It covers the sounds the letter "B" makes and words that begin with the letter in a fun and engaging way. The use of red, blue, yellow, and white are pleasing to the eye and perfectly highlight the objects and the letter “B”. Since children love correcting things they know to be wrong, this will be a huge hit with Preschoolers, Kindergarteners, and even First Graders. A must-have for every classroom or any parent looking for an interactive read aloud! (Ages 3 – 7)

It’s a diaper-bag-book kind of day! The peek-a-moo, peek-a-who series works like a charm (Nina Laden @chroniclebooks). Both of my kids adored them, and the ABC Pop Up keeps baby AND sibs entertained (Courtney Watson McCarthy, @candlewickpress). The other four—Flora set and Tiny Town/Farm are too sweet to pass up. They work to keep mama happy too during those long waiting room stints. A good baby bag board book is essential! They also make good #stockingstuffers #stockingfillers

In a holiday season where many children are consumed by ideas for presents that they would like to receive, The Gingerbread Man Loose at Christmas by Laura Murray and illustrated by Mike Lowery is a nice reminder about giving to others. The story begins with a teacher saying to her class, “It’s the season of giving and we can give, too! Our gifts could be things that we make, say or do.” I love that the story emphasizes that gifts can not only be physical items, but simply a kind word or a gesture as well. Children quickly begin writing poems, decorating cards, practicing singing, and making cookies. The gingerbread man from Murray’s first story (The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School), is back and doesn’t want to be left out of the gift giving. The children and the Gingerbread Man take to delivering gifts to people in town including a policewoman, a garbage man, and a librarian, which leads into a nice discussion about people and things you might see in your own neighborhood. They make it back to the school just in time to participate in a thoughtful class gift to the teacher.

The rhyming text makes this a fun read aloud to a group of children. There is a lot of detail in the childlike illustrations, which children will enjoy pouring over in a one-on-one setting. With the focus on the teacher at the end, this sweet story also makes a great gift for any teacher during the holidays.

Last Stop on Market Street delivers a poignant message that resonates with every age group.  We hope that a copy of this book eventually makes its way to every classroom library.  Since the giving season has begun, it would be wonderful if you would consider donating this book (or another diverse book) to your child’s class.  Books that celebrate diversity help foster empathy and compassion, and we’d love to see those qualities increase in our children as they get older.  Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!

We all need more HOPE in our lives! These lyrics to Light of the World by @lauren_daigle are beautiful and timely. Wishing you and your family an abundance of hope as we kickoff this Christmas season! 😊🎄
"The world waits for a miracle
The heart longs for a little bit of hope
Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel
A child prays for peace on Earth
And she's calling out from a sea of hurt
Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel
And can you hear the angels singing
Glory to the light of the world
Glory, the light of the world is here
The drought breaks with the tears of a mother
A baby's cry is the sound of love
Come down, come down, Emmanuel
He is the song for the suffering
He is Messiah, the Prince of Peace has come
He has come, Emmanuel
Glory to the light of the world...
For all who wait
For all who hunger
For all who've prayed
For all who wonder
Behold your King
Behold Messiah
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
Glory to the light of the world...
Behold your King
Behold Messiah
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
The world waits for the miracle
The heart longs for a little bit of hope
Oh come, oh come Emmanuel"

Wishing you and your family an abundance of hope as we kickoff this Christmas season! 😊🎄 "The world waits for a miracle The heart longs for a little bit of hope Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel A child prays for peace on Earth And she's calling out from a sea of hurt Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel And can you hear the angels singing Glory to the light of the world Glory, the light of the world is here The drought breaks with the tears of a mother A baby's cry is the sound of love Come down, come down, Emmanuel He is the song for the suffering He is Messiah, the Prince of Peace has come He has come, Emmanuel Glory to the light of the world... For all who wait For all who hunger For all who've prayed For all who wonder Behold your King Behold Messiah Emmanuel, Emmanuel Glory to the light of the world... Behold your King Behold Messiah Emmanuel, Emmanuel The world waits for the miracle The heart longs for a little bit of hope Oh come, oh come Emmanuel" #lightoftheworld  #hope  #merrychristmas  #advent  #TheKingsLocket  #childrensbooks  #kidsbookstagram  #kidlit  #kidlitart  #kidsbooks  #kidsbook  #readaloud  #readaloudrevival  #raisingreaders  #readbrightly  #raisingareader  #littlereader  #homeschool  #homeschoolmom  #homeschooling  #homeschoollife  #unschooling  #momblogger  #mommyblogger  #momlife  #momblog  #dadlife

Clara's dream is to become a Christmas fairy. A Christmas fairy’s job it is to stay still like a statue on top of a Christmas tree. When Christmas lesson time rolls around at fairy school, things don't go quite as planned. Clara's so excited that she can't possibly be still and quiet like a fairy should. Clara tries her best, but she is a wriggly, giggly chatterbox who likes nothing more than making people smile. (I know a little girl just like Clara!) When it's time for the big Christmas Show, that her class has been practicing, Santa has one major issue that needs solving. Clara is exactly the kind of fairy Santa needs to help him save the day. At last, Clara can put her talents to good use, and it soon becomes clear that there's more than one way to be a Christmas fairy! .
.
This is a gentle Christmas story about a silly and loving little fairy. You will fall head over heals for her the moment you crack this book open! The illustrations are heartwarming and beautifully done. .

A celebration of the diverse life on earth, from tiny to enormous.  MANY is a collection of comparisons, relationships between living things and astounding facts to consider such as the number of different kinds of living things catalogued by humans (hint—it’s well over a million). One last note about extinction reminds humans of their responsibility to care for and preserve our “big, beautiful, and complicated” world.

“Journey through the history of human and horse interaction.”
.
.
Thousands of years ago horses first became domesticated. Since becoming domesticated they have been a key part of our history. Horses have helped farmers in the fields, allowed people to travel short and far distances, pulled and transported goods, logged in densely forested areas, gone to war and to battle, participated in sports and the Olympics, been companions, and so much more. .
.
This beautifully illustrated book takes you from the earliest cave paintings of wild horses to the domesticated horses that we love and admire today. You will read about famous horses from history and discover many fascinating facts along the way!
.
.
If you have an animal lover or a horse enthusiast on your hands, then this book is for them. (Horses Wild & Tame would make for a fantastic holiday gift this year!) .

This is a classic case of determining if the grass is greener on the other side.  Sometimes you just have to break out of your shell 🐢 to explore & the turtle in this story had no idea what he was in for!

“One frosty night, Bear hears a tap, tap, tapping on his front door. ‘Merry Christmas!’ Says Mouse. Bear isn’t so sure.” You see Bear has never had a real Christmas before. Bear has read every Christmas book available trying to glean all that he can about the holiday. Mouse on the other hand seems to only be concerned with finding his gift from Bear. .
.
Each time Bear leaves the room to gather more Christmas treats, Mouse is no where to be found. Mouse is either under Bear’s bed, inside a closet, or scampering out from behind the Christmas tree. All Bear wants to do is have a traditional holiday filled with pickles and poems and Mouse just wants his gift, which causes quite the commotion. Together they come together to find the true meaning of Christmas, friendship. .
.
Get ready for holiday anticipation and the best kind of surprises as the curmudgeonly Bear and a hopeful Mouse return in a warm, funny tale full of holiday cheer and true friendship.

Oops. So may sometimes I stickers end up on a fridge or two. Thankfully they are still super cute and just add to the art work 😘

This months @kidlitpicks theme is 👉🏼 NUMBERS! So if you have a little learner that’s getting digit-curious, check this book out and then check out #kidlitpicks_123 for all sorts of good books! Our favorite right now is actually this little diddy. The illustrations are whimsical and the text is exactly the kind of straight forward yet fun stuff you would want for a book that makes its aim to illustrate several ways that we use numbers in everyday living. Enjoy! And if you want some other bookish inspo from the Kid Lit Picks team pay these gals a visit: @words.and.illustrations @book.nerd.mommy @bookbloom @homegrownreader

I recommend this book to anyone having a second (or third) child! It's super sweet and definitely makes me cry every time I read it. (Swipe to see the page that really gets me choked up! “You were the first to teach us how to be parents” 😭😭😭)
