Bob Books Reading Magic follows the same early literacy methods and principles as the #1 bestselling Bob Books series published by Scholastic. Bob Books were created over 40 years ago to guide children in preschool and kindergarten to the moment when letters first turn into words. By slowly introducing new letter sounds and using consistency, repetition and stories that fit short attention spans, your child will quickly find his or her own ah-ha moment. This is the reading magic of Bob Books. Soon your child will join over 4 million children who can proudly say, “I read the whole book!”®
