Format: Paperback
This is the same series as "More Bob Books," but it has been repackaged. It is a series of eight readers focusing on short vowels, consonant blends and compound words. My five year old started with "Bob Books First" and has progressed to this series. He finds the stories much more interesting but sometimes struggles with the new compound words. By the third time reading a book he had mastered it sufficiently to be anxious to begin reading the next. We could not be more pleased with the series.

I can not say enough good things about these books. My 6 year old daughter has struggled with reading for a while. She would get frustrated and discouraged with other books. The BOB books are easy for her to decode, The illustrations are simple and not distracting.
she feels a sense of accomplishment when she completes the books. She brings one or two books with her where ever she goes and has started reading to everyone, she even calls her relatives out of state and reads them the stories over the phone! This is the best reading program I have ever seen! Thank you for developing this program!!!

These books are awesome in that they gently elevate the child to greater and greater difficulty in reading, consistently and slowly. There are no huge gaps in complexity, no wondering if this book is too difficult or too easy. Each set naturally progresses to the next, and the overall series ends with the child being comfortably able to process easy readers from the library. Both of my children were able to learn to read using their "Mat books" as they call them, and were always eager to read the next book, or begin the next box. I cannot praise them highly enough. Definitely worthwhile.

PLEASE READ:

My son's are now in 7th and 8th grade and as I mentioned above, our 1st child was really behind in his reading skills in Kindergarten. He is now headed to high school next year. He is a straight A student, has taken 7 high school courses/credits and gets 5's on his FCATs in middle school and is currently reading "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" by William Shirer, this is not a book a middle school student would be expected to read but he can't put it down.

While he has many successful accomplishments not attributed to his reading skills, the items I mentioned above can be directly attributed to his love of reading. I still have his Bob's books and they are a treasure in our family. I recommend these books to all my friends and family with children headed to kindergarten. Please believe me when I say that NOTHING outside of our parenting has had as much of an impact as spending time with our boys learning to read and Bob's books was the tool that we used and would recommend. Eight years have past and they still remember learning to read with them.

I originally wrote this review 8 years ago regarding the books. My son's still have fond memories of them and love the books. They will be in my family for my boy's children. Here is the original review:

My son just started Kindergarten about 3 months ago, he just turned six. I had taught him chess, and many other logical skills (I'm an engineer) but neglected to nurture his reading needs. After his first semester review I was shocked to find out that he was struggling with is site words. The day I got home from his school I ordered all the Bob's Books.

My son started reading them almost immediately, in fact on evening he read 12 of them back to back.

The Bob's Books are a great start for new readers! I couldn't find any other books simple enough to give my daughter confidence. Now she's in the 4th box (Level B, Set 2) and is starting to read OTHER books like Go Dog, Go and even the Cat in the Hat! When these books seem too much (because they're much longer) we go back to the Bob's books to gain more confidence. It's fun to listen to her read and help her learn in a very systematic way!
