Dear Parent:

Your child’s love of reading starts here!

I Can Read Books have introduced children to the joy of reading since 1957. Featuring award-winning authors and illustrators and a fabulous cast of beloved characters, I Can Read Books set the standard for beginning readers. From books your child reads with you to the first books they read alone, there are I Can Read Books for every stage of reading:

Shared Reading

Basic language, word repetition, and whimsical illustrations, ideal for sharing with your emergent reader

Beginning Reading

Short sentences, familiar words, and simple concepts for children eager to read on their own

Reading with Help

Engaging stories, longer sentences, and language play for developing readers

Reading Alone

Complex plots, challenging vocabulary, and high-interest topics for the independent reader

Advanced Reading

Short paragraphs, chapters, and exciting themes for the perfect bridge to chapter books

Every child learns in a different way and at their own speed. Some read through each level in order. Others go back and forth between levels and read favorite books again and again. You can help your young reader improve and become more confident by encouraging their own interests and abilities.

A lifetime of discovery begins with the magical words, "I Can Read!"
