Our personalised deliveries help readers, big and small, practise the essential phonics and reading skills that are taught in school.

What we do and what we believe in

The Bear Can Read is the world’s first truly joined-up reading club. It gives kids the tool kit they need to create a love for books. We put school and home on the same page, and just like that, children get it. And you do too. We believe in making things easy. And most of all, we believe in kids.

Phonics is fun with The Bear Can Read

We love phonics. As do children. And teachers and literary experts. It’s the reading launchpad for all state and independent primary schools. So much so, every child in state school now sits a Phonics Screening Check in year 1 to track their progress.

Making things easy

We offer one simple route to reading success. Just like learning to swim, kids need all the practise they can get. We make phonics simple and playful. It’s exactly the same method used in school – just a lot more fun.
