Los Angeles Clippers and Scobre Educational Team Up for Reading Project

Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — Scobre Educational announced today that they have been commissioned by the Los Angeles Clippers to create a 48-page book for distribution through the team’s community outreach programs. The book will be a customized version of Scobre’s NBA licensed series ‘On the Hardwood: Los Angeles Clippers’, and will be engaging for both young readers and Clipper fans of all ages.

“The Clippers have expressed dedication to inspiring the next generation of readers, so it’s great to be able to blend our abilities in developing new readers with the excitement of Clippers basketball,” Scott Blumenthal, Scobre’s co-founder said. “Many striving readers will be able to read about their favorite Clippers for the first time in a book that is loaded with photographs and team history.”

Scobre Educational began a publishing history with the NBA in 2005. The NBA’s Read-to-Achieve initiative featured the award winning Scobre title, ‘Hoop City’ and Scobre has also created customized books for the Indiana Pacers, Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, Atlanta Hawks and the Seattle SuperSonics.
