Category Description for Bob Books (Color and B&W):

Bob Books are just the right size for small hands! The text is simple and charming with line-drawings on each page. The covers and boxes are printed with a single, bright color, and illustrations "pop" with small splashes of that same color. Five basic sets in all. Sets 1 and 2 are for beginning readers and feature consistent sounds and short vowels in three-letter words; Sets 3 and 4 include blends, endings, and occasional sight words. Set 5 has long vowel words, compound words, sight words, and longer stories.




Category Description for Bob Books:

Why are these much-acclaimed set of phonetic practice readers so irresistible to the beginning reader? Perhaps it's the size - just right for small hands; or the length - beginning books in the series are just 12 pages long so your child can read the whole book. Or maybe it's the interesting text as opposed to the bland stuff found in many controlled vocabulary readers. Of course, it could be the simple but charming line-drawings that grace each page. Then there's the bright colors of the covers - or the whole "box" concept complete with stage and finger puppet. Whatever their attraction, a few things come through clearly - they work, kids love them, and grown-ups just aren't sure why! However, these readers have been long used by Montessori teachers in the classroom, too.

There are five sets in all, with 12 books ineach set. Sets 1 and 2 are for beginning readers and feature consistent sounds and short vowels in three-letter words. The color illustrations feature small splashes of color in the same shade as that book's cover. Although only small bits of one shade of color accentuate the illustrations, the effect does make them "pop". Sets 3 and 4 include blends, endings, and occasional sight words. Set 3 has 10 books and Set 4 has 8 longer books. Set 5 also has 8 longer books which contain long vowel words, compound words, sight words, and longer stories.

If you want to nurture a child's lifelong interest in reading, Bob Books would be an excellent place to start!

My 7 year old son had access to one from a friend and he loved it. These are a confidence booster to my struggling reader. When he read one of the books by himself he realized he wasn't behind like he had felt.

Homeschooling 3 kids. 7, almost 4 and & 7mths. Oldest just finished First grade. I am looking for simple reading books I can read to all three kids at once that can teach them how to read.

I used these for younger children with success, but they've become so popular that our library can't keep them, and I needed my own copies.

I used it in the past to teach my son to read. I found a child that wants to learn to read really badly. This is a gift for him.
Rebecca L M on Jun 26, 2017
Our school uses them and I think they're great!
Autumn B on Mar 28, 2017
I have used Bob books as a part of a learn to read strategy for many different children over decades. It has been an excellent tool for highly capable children, ESL students, developmentally delayed students and LD students. It is not a stand-alone reading program, but it is an excellent tool.

Bob books sets 1-5
I'm a kindergarten teacher and a Mom. I highly recommend Bob Books! Many readers are sight word based, relying on memorization of words. These actually help build phonics decoding skills!

Great reads for beginners!??
I really love Bob books. I use the Teach 100 easy lessons to read, and also supplement with the Bob books. I used them with my 9 year old. I am now using them with my 7 year old. She reads right through them which is building her language skills but also her confidence! It is great to hear her tell me that I read a lot of Bob books before bed Mom to my.baby sister. Makes a Moms heart glad!My homeschool children LOVES these books!

These ste simple little books that work on particular vowels or consonants and they get progressively more difficult but they are esay enough for little kids to decode each book on their own. We like them a lot. The first boxes have activities too.

Excellent
Exceptional books. With a solid base of the alphabet and phonics (via Leap Frog DVD’s), they jumped right into these books. They build well upon each other, have cute illustrations and provide a tremendous feeling of success and accomplishment.

I learned to read with Bob Books as a little girl and am now using them with my 5 year old daughter So far she has completed sets 1-3 without complaints We actually look forward to our reading time Although I did not purchase all the sets together I wish I had! It would have saved time and money in the end We will end up buying them all individually Very pleased with Bob Books and my daughter is too
