About Brooke Vitale

I’m a children’s book editor and author by trade. I have worked for the biggest publishing companies out there, including Disney and Penguin. I have edited THOUSANDS of picture books, and I have written hundreds.

I never expected to start my own publishing company, but I did. And I did it for the same reason many of you are here today: because I wanted my child to learn how to read.

Our Literacy Specialist

When I was teaching my child to read, the person I called for help was Marisa Ware, a LETRS and Orton-Gillingham trained literacy specialist.

Marisa is the person who introduced me to decodable text. The entire Charge into Reading Decodable Book Series has been designed in consultation with her.

The combined skills of a children's book author and an educator is what makes our decodable books stand above the rest.

Our Mission

My mission is to lay at your hands the resources your children need to be successful readers.

I recognize not every family or school can afford to buy new books. I never want lack of access to be the reason a child doesn't learn to read.

That's why we offer so many high-quality free digital resources including books, passages, readers' theater, and more.

Free Resources

Book Donations

Ten percent of profits on the sale of all Charge Mommy Books will go back to the community in the form of free resources, book donations, and monetary donations to various literacy initiatives.

2023 Charge into Donations Winners

In 2023, our first full year of operations, we donated more than 1,000 sets of decodable readers to schools in need. Four title 1 schools were each gifted 250 sets of decodable readers, 40 picture books, and 40 early reader books.

  • Edward J Russel School—Pine Bush, NY

    "Edward J. Russell is so grateful for the donations from Charge Mommy Books. Our AIS reading interventionists use the books almost daily. Classes in grades K-2 were all also able to get sets to use. The kids enjoy them so much because they are successfully reading them! I love how easy it is to find a book based on the phonics skill I'm teaching that week. My planning and interventions are a piece of cake now and my students are growing! Thank you!"

  • Edison Elementary—Salt Lake City, UT

    "These decodable books play a crucial role in supporting early literacy development in my classroom. By providing structured practice in phonics, boosting confidence, improving fluency, expanding vocabulary, fostering comprehension skills and promoting independence in reading, I am able to provide differentiation and offer vital support for my struggling readers. These books have been a game changer for my students!"

  • The Children's School of Rochester—Rochester, NY

    "My students and colleagues were so grateful for the donation. My very beginning readers are so proud when they are able to read a new book all by themselves! The supplemental resources for the short vowel sets have been a great tool to provide them with a little extra scaffolding to get them ready to read the books independently. Thank you again for the donation—it brought a new wave of excitement about reading to my school!"

2024 Read Across America Celebration

Learning to read means doing more than reading at school. It also means having books to read at home. Unfortunately, not every family has access to books at home. That's why we celebrated Read Across America week by choosing 3 classrooms to win a picture book and a set of decodable readers for every child to take home and keep, along with a classroom set of our decoable readers for use at school.
