Our Story

Calling All Book-Loving Families 

We’re on a mission to inspire a lifelong love of reading with books kids actually want to read. With hundreds of award-winning children’s books, we thoughtfully designed an engaging and exciting early reader book club. Our book club is brought to life by passionate children’s book publishers who work together with exceptional authors and illustrators. And with guided reading levels and convenient home deliveries, we make it easy for parents to share a variety of feel-good content, track reading progression, and celebrate the milestones with their budding bookworms. From story time together with you to reading independently on their own, we partner with parents and kids every step of the way to make this learn-to-read subscription journey filled with fun, joy, and adventure.


Inspiring Kids to Read Since 1957 

Since 2018, we’ve been shipping early reader book boxes to kids across the U.S. But the fun didn’t start there! I Can Read! got its start in 1957 with the goal of inspiring a love of reading in every child. Generations of kids have fallen in love with reading with classic children’s book characters like the Berenstain Bears, Little Critter, and Frog and Toad. Newcomers like Pete the Cat, Pinkalicious, and Baby Shark have captured the hearts of budding bookworms, too. We’re proud to publish a treasure trove of early reader books each day that kids love to read. More so, to meet them where they are with an exciting learn-to-read subscription box. We believe that every child should have access to great books and experience the joy of reading. At present, we’ve donated over 30,000 books to Save the Children to help kids in need in rural America read.


Creating Story Time Magic at Every Stage 

We know that reading is magic. When a child learns how to read, they can be anywhere, be anything, at any time. New people, places, and things are just a page-turn and an imagination away. We also know that the best time to discover the joy of reading is now, during the formative stages of early childhood. Our goal is to meet kids where they are with a curated learn-to-read subscription and fantastic roster of early reader books. With I Can Read! Book Club, today’s busy families can stop wasting time searching for age-appropriate books to buy and, instead, enjoy more time reading together. In a world connected by screen time, we’re bringing back the magic of story time. Let the fun begin!
