#LoveLearning: It's our last week.

We loved this book! I've read it weekly to my kids as there is so much "new" in their little lives with teachers, classrooms, routines and new friends. But it's a bit of a role reversal because this books is all about prepping their teachers for a rad school year. Meet this week's Brightly Book is: How to Get Your Teacher Ready. This Land's End weekly book recommendation also seems custom tailored to our little family. Here are the cliff notes:

On the first day of school, a class of adorable students welcomes their new teacher with helpful advice for the whole year. Filled with handy tips (like avoiding messy snacks on picture day!), this sweet story prepares young readers to have a fun-filled and memorable year.

Parent Tip: I recommend using the Brightly website to track summer reading initiatives for your kiddos.. The site helps make it a little easier, and a lot more fun, for parents to encourage daily reading. We love the site because there are book recommendations from all publishers for every age and stage, reading tips, author essays, seasonal suggestions, and more. 

Don't forget that each Thursday through August 31, 2017 Lands’ End will feature a Brightly Book of the Week along with thoughtful discussion questions for parents and kids to encourage reading comprehension. And have fun with it - you and your kids can show your love of reading with a photo or video using #LoveLearning and #LandsEndKids for a weekly chance to win a book from Brightly by posting on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
