Editorial Reviews


"Forget Dick and Jane. Your beginning reader needs Bob Books® to succeed."

"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!"--

"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.

More About the Author

Lynn Maslen Kertell has been involved with Bob Books right from the beginning, starting with the first edition in the 1970s. Lynn pasted-up and hand-lettered the original Bob Books, created by her parents, Bobby and John Maslen, when she was in high school.

As Lynn's own daughter was beginning to learn to read, returning to the family business was a natural step. Her experience tackling the fun, bonding and sometimes complex task of helping her child learn to read, showed her that Bob Books really work. There are many skills a child needs to become literate. Bob Books' measured approach respects the steps that turn a child into a reader, and entertains them with real stories that kids can relate to.

Lynn brings the Maslen sense of humor, warmth and gentle encouragement to her writing, as she creates the next generation of Bob Books. She continues Bobby's phonics-based approach to teaching reading, and is proud to contribute to the millions of children who can say with pride, "I read the whole book!"®

Lynn lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband and daughter.

There are a lot of so-called "early reader" books out there that are completely inappropriate for actual early readers: They are loaded with too many words that are not easily decodable. The Step Into Reading books with Disney characters on the front are a perfect example. The Bob Books are really written for the early reader. This series introduces three new sight words per book, and the words are repeated throughout the story. The remaining words are mostly consonant-vowel-consonant, CCVC or CVCC words that follow basic decoding rules. There are a few words here and there that are a little trickier but are easily inferred from context and pictures. The stories are short, there is not too much print on the pages, and stories are clever and engaging. The flash cards are a nice addition. These Bob books, along with Meet the Sight Words, the Biscuit Phonics Box Set and Nora Gaydos's Now I'm Reading, Playful Pals Level 1 are the best books to give to the child who has learned a few sight words and can decode CVC words and is ready to apply those skills to books.

2 months into kindergarten, the teacher called a conference with my wife and I. Suggested that our son repeat Kindergarten due to his frustration and lack of attention in learning his ABC's. So we were determined to teach him his ABC's, reading, and have him enter 1st grade with his peers. We purchased Set 1, 2, and sight words.
Now fast forward 2 months after the Bob's books, my son is reading!!! And his teacher sent home a lengthy note about how ecstatic they were in his reading. They even called him a super reader!
You must be patient because these books are "boring" to a NORMAL reader, however, to a kid that is just beginning to understand how to sound letters, and put them in to words – they are an absolute MUST. He gets very excited with each book he finishes, and we let him put marbles in his reward jar. Full jar equals cool reward.

Each set contains 12 books (I think), and they are short reads – 7 or 8 pages. Very little distractions. WE ARE SOOOO HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE!

Format: Paperback
The Bob Books are a series of boxed sets designed to help develop skills at different levels and complexities. They are designed to grow with a child as their skills in reading improve. There are 10 books in this specific boxed set:
Mat Hid
The Jet
As Big As
She Did It
Frog Sat
The Trip
Sun Sets

30 Flash Cards of the 30 sights words:
a , as, can, did, do, down, fly, get, go, goes, had, has, home, in, is, jump, look, not, off, on, over, ran, saw, she, some, they, to, was, went, who

The tools combined in this box set are a real aide in helping a child grow and develop their reading skills. The focused repetitions between the flash cards, and the same words being a big focus in the books, is a well designed and planned tool.

Both of my children have started reading before the age of 5 thanks to the Bob books. My Daughter just came home from pre-school one day and said I'm going to read our book today. I thought okay she'll tell me about the pictures. She really read a book. They told me she had been working with the Bob books at school. Of course I went out and bought the sets. My 5yr old Son has been working with them at home and is starting school with a good reading base. The new sight words books are great because they take the sight words he's knows from flash cards and uses them in sentences. There are also flash cards with the books that have the word on one side and a sectences on the other. I think the Bob books work because they are so simple. The pictures are black and white drawings and don't distract the kids from the words. Yes, they are boring to adults especially after reading them several times. I have had several friends call and thank me after I recommended these books.

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.

I have a 5 year old son who has just started reading. These are wonderful books. Short and simple without extra confusing words and phonics concepts in the books. Simple and age appropriate pictures and plots in the books. I have every box set of these and they are all great!
