"Forget Dick and Jane. Your beginning reader needs Bob Books® to succeed."
--cpamomva.blogspot.com

"Tiny enough to sneak in a very full diaper bag, we are enjoying them here, there, and everywhere." -- needsnewbatteries.blogspot.com

"They are a wonderful addition to a home library, school library, or a homeschool library. I love the smiles on my daughters' faces when they have succeeded in reading a book--that's priceless!" -- ourgaggleofgirls.com

"Bob Books® made our children into avid readers. Best investment I ever made."
-- The Lewiston Tribune

From the Author

At Bob Books, we emphasize that learning to read should be gentle and easy. This means that letters and concepts are introduced slowly and in a way that kids can understand, with plenty of repetition and opportunity for achievement. Learning to read is surprisingly complex, but Bob Books progress gradually and gently, helping children achieve early reading success and setting a foundation for a lifetime of strong literacy skills. Our method of meeting children where they are on their path to reading, is the easiest and most effective method, versatile enough to use both at home and in the classroom.

Feeling overwhelmed with the task of teaching your child to read?

The good news is that you don't have to know reading theory to use Bob Books. Teaching your child to read using Bob Books will not feel like teaching. Bob Books provide a step-by-step program to gently guide your child through the early stages of reading.
At each level, books are carefully crafted to meet the needs of a particular stage in a child's reading development. Learning to read with Bob Books assures children success from their very first reading experience. Your child will amaze you with how quickly they can go from needing help, to reading all by themselves.

Don't Push

Not all children are ready to read at the same age. Be sensitive to your child's learning style and reading readiness. Practice together, sounds out words and play games. Take many small steps, and be patient. One day you'll be surprised and delighted to discover your child is a reader.

This is easy!

A confident reader is a reader for life. That's why Bob Books sets were designed to give your child early reading confidence - so that they will love to read!

Make it FUN!

Other early literacy programs can teach your child to "memorize" words or "perform" reading well, but Bob Books is not meant to be a chore. Best of all, there are so many ways to make it enjoyable for your child. Try the activities that come with the sets, use silly voices while reading together and make up songs.

We wish your young learner much success and happiness as he or she enters the great adventure of reading.

As a 1st grade teacher, these books are indispensable for my emerging readers who still need a short, quickie book that allows them to focus their skills on basic decoding and sight words. The pictures are a delight and the kids feel very comfortable with these. Great way to guide kids into more difficult words.

If you have a preschooler, kindergartner or even a struggling first grader you will not be sorry you purchase these books! My four yr old told me he wanted to read so we started with set 1 and I have all 5 boxed sets plus the Kindergarten sight words boxed set. Today my preschooler is reading at the same level my first grader was at the beginning of the school year; and my first grader was in the top 3/4 of his class! The books are perfect in every way. The start off using 3 letters a book, one sentence per page and gradually get more complex letter sounds and longer stories. My son WANTS to read and we read twice daily! I taught my now middle schooler how to read at age four also but I know it would've been a lot less stressful (for me) if I would have known about these books. My son practically taught himself to read these books! Just make sure that your child can recognize each letter and knows what sound it makes. We only knew short vowel sounds when we started these, now my son can read words like 'wonderful', 'bright', 'another', 'business' and more! DO NOT HESITATE, buy these for your child; and yourself!!

My kids love the Bob Books. I purchased them all, I love that my kids will sit down and read them on their own without any help. They are easy and fun and help them to gain a command of sight words without the use of flashcards.

This set is for higher functioning students who are struggling in reading in First Grade.
It give them good daily practice to help them understand how words "work"; in this
case, compound words.

I love these Bob books. I bought sets 1-5. My boys are still on the first box and they are cruising right through. Kindergarten and first grade. It is GREAT to find a set that introduces new word families and then reinforces them. You won't be disappointed. The drawings are so simple but my kids really do relate.

My son thought the plot lines were a bit boring, but it was nice to have something he could read with his limited skills. The Bob Books systematically take the child from just a few letters and sounds through meeting each new sound and finally to reading longer words and more complicated stories. My son understood that the books were in order, gradually increasing in complexity, and he took pride in mastering each one and moving up to a new level.

These books are great for emergent readers. If your child is struggling in Kindergarten, this is a great at-home way to help them reinforce their reading skills. I highly recommend these books as a teacher and a mom.
