I bought this series along with the other five: Series One: Beginning Readers through Series Five: Complex Words. The trouble is, I didn't open this to see where it "fit" in with respect to the series. So, we did Series 1 through 5 first, and then this one. The result was that this was way too easy for my child. Once you have finished Series Five you are effectively way beyond the level of this series. I would recommend inserting it after Series 1 or perhaps Series 2. If you go beyond those, you probably are past the point of needing this set. I have not purchased the Sight Words First Grade edition so I unfortunately cannot comment on where it fits in with the others.

All in all, though, I felt like the books were very nice. I wish I had used them earlier. Having used all five sets plus this set for my child, I can heartily recommend the BOB series of books. I tried other small book series, The Reading Lesson, and just random books to teach my children, and this is by far the most effective and enjoyable method we have used thus far. I think you will be very pleased if you purchase these.

Flash cards are a great way to memorize sight words for my 5 yr old. The books are simple to read and not intimidating at all.

Nice layout similar to mac & tab, easy words to get your preschooler interested. Do check the look inside, graphics are quite simplistic to keep your little one interested enough without being too distracted.

Awesome way to get kids to start reading. Very easy simple words to encourage learning. Now my little one can read books to me.

The whole series is great and has really been teaching my four-year old to read. She is sounding out words all the time now and I think this series does a great job of making it "easy"

We really appreciate the BOB books in our home. Books that my daughter, nearly 6, can read without getting too stumped or frustrated. They're probably a tad bit too easy for her, but the repetition is what counts for me and she can and will pick up these books on her own to just read. We also have level 1 books. We'll probably get most of the sets because we use them that much. I just haven't found other sets of books that are this read-able for her.

What I do not like about them are the ugly and creepy drawings. They really bother me, to an irrational point, I know. My husband is indifferent about the issue. I know something is better than nothing, but I wish I could find more quality design/drawings in books that we use this often. Overall, we really are grateful to have these books and recommend them to anyone. If I could find its literary equivalent with nicer illustrations, I would switch in a second.

A co-worker of mine told me about this series as her children had several sets when they were young. Although teenagers now, she says they STILL have vivid and fond memories of them which said a lot to me. So I ordered two sets to start and, immediately, my kindergartner was hooked. The stories are rhythmic and simple and the artwork is cute.

Good book difficult effort for my son. He does get bored with the stories but for learning to read it helps.

My kids love these books and my 5 year old is already reading pretty well despite not being able to start any formal school this year.
