Scott Blumenthal, co-founder of Scobre, announced the company’s plans today; “We’re putting the final touches on a new series of four (4) books targeting middle-school and high school readers. It has been our experience that true stories of successful entrepreneurs are a strong draw for a great number of young striving readers.” Blumenthal continued, “We’re developing books that engage young readers and inspire them to really enjoy the experience of reading and benefit from useful and interesting content. Young people have a lot of things competing for their attention and in our multi-media world, reading progress can be derailed. We’ve created content that gives reading books a competitive advantage. And, we’re making these titles available on GoReader™ as Book Buddy Sets for Hear and Read Intervention.”

Scobre Educational, also known as Scobre Press created the Urban Entrepreneur series with true stories about very successful and highly visible personalities in Fashion, Food, Sports and one entirely about Innovators. The books focus on the planning and execution of the successful plans and ideas of the featured entrepreneurs. Stories of how smart work and perseverance are essential and often confused by observers as luck. “These stories resonate with teens because these individuals and their endeavors are current, as are their circumstances. These are success stories despite challenges. These are ‘no excuses’ lessons of real people of whom kids can relate. That’s why we’ve created audio for all our titles; everything we publish is available as a Book Buddy Set with GoReader™. In this way the printed book is paired with the GoReader™ device that has the audio permanently preloaded which creates an incredible training aid for striving readers.” added Scott Blumenthal. “

All Scobre titles are available as Book Buddy Sets featuring the GoReader™ for Hear and Read Intervention. Scobre Educational has been an innovator since its creation in 2001, and is also known for its very popular leveled-reading series, updated non-fiction series and its fiction works, specifically written to engage striving readers and reluctant readers. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Book Buddy Digital Media, Inc.; with principal offices in La Jolla and Silicon Valley in California, Seattle, Washington, Mexico and Hong Kong, the company is an affiliate of STI Certified Products, Inc., and is engaged in educational publishing that is focused on Hear and Read Intervention with its proprietary device, GoReader™. This small handheld audio book player is paired with the printed book providing one-on-one instructional alternatives to striving and emerging readers. Hear and Read helps build confidence and develop phonemic awareness and a love of reading. By definition, Book Buddy Sets (GoReader™ plus the printed book) are Common Core Standards Aligned.
