Kluwell Publications was formed. The two original authors, Stan Kluzek and Andrew Coldwell, had a combined primary teaching background of over 50 years and in 1996 they followed their passion for teaching reading and developed their first publication called ‘R.E.A.D. I.T. – Home Reading’ Books. Their idea to produce a reading booklet for kids to use as a home reading log, promoting that reading is fun and encouraging the use of reading diaries with reading rewards such as stickers and awards. Currently Kluwell’s My Home Reading journals, previously known as R.E.A.D. I.T. – Home Reading Books, has sold more than six million copies worldwide!
