Scott Blumenthal, Scobre’s co-founder said, “All of our titles are available with GoReaderâ¢ audio because we feel this is the best way to get books in the hands of reluctant and striving readers. Hear & Readâ¢ addresses the timidity and fear of students struggling with reading and transforms it into a rewarding experience with many ah-hah moments as they build their vocabulary and phonemic awareness. Scobr Educational hit the market a little over decade ago with innovative and culturally relevant titles to draw striving readers. Now that all Scobre titles are available with GoReaderâ¢ audio support, we are as excited as ever because we’re reaching students that are often identified with the achievement gap as we develop tools that help teachers help students help themselves.”
