Bright Child AZ is a small, locally owned consulting and book business based out of Chandler, Arizona.
We specialize in finding and selling books that support gifted and creative learners, their families and educators. In addition to finding, and also writing many of our books, we work with authors and other professionals to provide educational consulting to schools, school districts, and parents across the country. Gifted learners are unique and it is our passion to support them and the adults in their lives.
Founded by Adam Laningham, and in partnership with family and friends, Bright Child AZ works to bring creativity and support of gifted learners to as many parents, teachers, and schools as we can. Our team consists of internationally known authors, psychologists, expert teachers, and administrators.
