Description


Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years. This iconic phonics-based learn-to-read set has sold millions of copies, allowing children around the world to say with pride, "I read the whole book!"®

With playful stories, silly illustrations, and a phonics approach based on Science of Reading research, Bob Books keep young readers' confidence high, leading to continued success and a love of reading. Your child will soon join the millions of happy kids who say, "I read the whole book!"®

These are the first books your child can read! Perfect for kids who are just learning letter sounds, each book contains two- and three-letter words that can be sounded out. The first story uses only four sounds (m, a, t, s) and one sight word! Sounds are added gradually until all letters of the alphabet have been introduced (except q). The very simple stories allow kids to read a whole book, boosting their confidence and motivating them to come back for more. Many beginning readers are so proud they can read these books, they read them to everyone they know!

Inside the box you'll find:

  • 12 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books; 12 pages each, 4-27 unique words per book, sized perfectly for little hands
  • A parent guide with tips for helping your child learn to read

Each book includes:

  • Decodable text: Two- and three-letter words with short vowels that can be sounded out (on, sat, can, ran)
  • Very simple sentences (Sam sat.)
  • Very limited sight words (a, the)
  • New letter sounds added gradually until young readers have read books with all letters of the alphabet (except Q)
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words
