My 5 year old will be starting homeschooling in a few months so I bought this set to get him ready to start reading. I have never seen him so excited about a book set before. I planned on reading him four books out of this series a day for a week or two and he wants to go through six a day. He loves the pattern book and wanted to go around the house and find things to make his own patterns. He is begging me to buy his next set of bob books!
