Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years! This phonics-based box set is perfect for kids who need practice at a very beginning reading level.

Bob Books More Beginning Readers gives early readers more support with beginning phonics skills, reinforcing what they learned in Bob Books Beginning Readers. This set can also be read on its own by any child just learning to read. The silly stories use three-letter words, short sentences, and plenty of repetition to keep the text simple and decodable, helping kids become comfortable and confident with basic reading!

Inside the box you’ll find:

  • 12 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books: 12 pages each, 8-25 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: Three-letter words with short vowels that can be sounded out (cat, bag, fox, bed)
  • Very simple sentences (Sam can pat.)
  • Very limited sight words (a, go, the)
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words
