9 Standout Verse Novels for Kids and Teens Reading Below Grade Level @ Brightly

I am very proud to announce that I wrote an article for a website I respect and consider a resource when seeking out noteworthy kid's books,  Brightly. While they aren't quite few and far between, the verse novel is a genre I discovered and fell in love with years ago. When I started work as a librarian at an elementary school with a population of English language learners reading below grade level, I made it my mission to find complex stories that were not complex when it came to reading.

Earlier this year, Brightly reached out to me, asking if I would promote their website. Owned by PenguinRandom House, Brightly is not singleminded in the books featured. Besides a great design value and user friendly website, I really value the books, booklists and issues featured for kids, tweens, teens and adults. Wanting to be part of this great resource, I pitched and idea for a piece and 9 Standout Verse Novels for Kids and Teens Reading Below Grade Level is the end result. I hope you will give this a read and please know that you can read more detailed reviews of all nine verse novels featured on my blog.
