When I was three years old my grandma signed me up for the Beginning Readers Program, a book club that sent me a new Beginner Book each month. These books, along with a small set of Beginner Books inherited from my uncle, provided me with my first reading experiences. When I became a father, I returned to that set of books, and was delighted at how they still brought that old thrill back to me, and how they brought new thrills to my sons. I Can Read It All By Myself  details how this ground-breaking line came to be, provides a comprehensive look at the books themselves, and tells the stories of the men and women who created them.
