Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years! This fun set of easy-to-read stories focuses on rhyming words—perfect for beginning readers.

Rhyming makes reading more fun! Each book in this phonics-based box set explores a different rhyming word family. Listening for and identifying rhyming words is an important early reading activity because it trains a child's ear to hear the differences and similarities in how words sound. The repetition of rhyming sounds in these silly stories helps early readers sound out the one-syllable words. This collection is a great companion to Bob Books Beginning Readers and Bob Books First Stories.

Inside the box you’ll find:

  • 10 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books: 12 pages each, 15-23 unique words per book, sized perfectly for little hands
  • 40 rhyming word puzzle cards to practice with
  • A parent guide with tips for helping your child learn to read

Each book includes:

  • A new rhyming word family in every book (AN: can, Dan, fan, plan, ran)
  • Decodable text: three- and four-letter rhyming words with short vowels that can be sounded out
  • Simple sentences (The red sled sped.)
  • Limited sight words (a, now, for)
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words
