Stock Your Children's Bookshelves with Star Bright Books!

You know how much we L-O-V-E books in our house! I think my son definitely gets his love of books from me (I could sit and read a good book all day if I had the chance!) and one of my greatest joys as a parent is sitting down with him, cuddling, and teaching him life lessons and introducing a whole new world that are found in books! We seriously have more books than we know what to do with but we have read every single book and loved each one!

One of the great publishers of some of my son's favorite books is Star Bright Books!

Star Bright Books is an independent publishing company dedicated to producing the highest quality books for children. Deborah Shine established the press in 1994 with the goal of making “Great Books for Great Kids.” (they are great for parents and other care givers too!)

They recognize that to inspire a life-long love of books, it is important for children to begin building that relationship at the earliest possible age. They believe that all children should see themselves in print and they make a concerted effort to include children of all colors, nationalities, and abilities in our books. In addition to seeing themselves, children should also hear familiar language in the books they choose. In pursuit of that goal, they publish engaging books in twenty languages.

With over 75 years collective experience conceiving, writing, designing, editing and publishing books for children and young readers, Star Bright Books strive to develop and offer the best books possible for children of all ages, nationalities, interests, abilities, and special needs.

Star Bright Books has one of the greatest selection of educational and colorful books for all ages! Here are some of latest favorites from them in several different categories!

They all reply. The gently rocking seas and Mama's loving arms soon send Little Sea Otter to dreamland.
