About the I can readathon !

The I Can Readathon is for children who are learning to read. By pledging to read every day, new readers grow more confident and can enjoy reading on their own and proudly say, “I Can Read!”

Celebrate 60 Years of I Can Read

The launch of the I Can Read! books was inspired by the excited cry of a young child: “I can read! I can read! Where are the books for me?” I Can Read! books have introduced children to the joy of reading since 1957. We are celebrating this special anniversary with paper-over-board editions featuring foil covers and 8 pages of bonus material, including origin stories of favorite characters and early never-before-seen character sketches!

Host an I can readathon with these printables materials!
