From the Author
Hello friends of Bob Books! John and I, proud grandparents, are happy to announce that our first grandchild has learned to read the books in Bob Book First!.
She was about 4 1/2 when the reading "light bulb" turned on. She loves to be read to, as always, but now she is proud that she can read to her little sister and to us. She will start kindergareten this fall.
We attribute Peggy's success to her mom who started early with magnetic letters on the refrigerator. She read everything from books to street signs to cereal boxes to her.
The Parent Teacher Guide enclosed in each set of Bob Books provides lots of information on what to expect and tips on getting ready to read. It is helpful before and during your child's reading experience.
After Bob Books First!, Bob Books Fun! keeps your reader confident by providing an easy transition to Bob Books Kids! Pals! and Wow! New skills are carefully chosen in each surprising and funny set. "I read the whole book!" are favorite words from Bob Books young readers. As a special treat, there are two cut out puppets and a real stage hidden in every box!
Happy reading from your friends,
Bobby and John Maslen
P.S. Bob Books Kids! contains two activity books for more challenge and fun.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My son started reading them almost immediately, in fact on evening he read 12 of them back to back. He went to bed to night begging to read some more, he had already read 9 of them, he wants to read the WOW books and he's working through the A and B series first. He recognizes his rapid reading skills and it's getting him really excited. It's amazing to see your child bouncing with excitement to get to read the next book.
It was stated in another review that your children won't learn on their own, but I disagree. My son rereads the books after we go through them. He even reads them to his four year old brother and he teaches him with the same skills that I used to teach him which makes him an even better reader.
Bottom line, my child learned to read multi-syllable words withing a week of receiving these books. I was very upset after leaving his first review at school, I felt like I had made a serious error in my kids education, these books turned it around. He came from being the worst reader in his class to the third best in just a couple of weeks, Amazing. BTW, these books help reinforce the site words used in the Kindergarten curriculum.
UPDATE, 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.
Thank you Bob.
