Bob Books Set 1- Beginning Readers: Box Set
My son apparantly had problems learning the alphabet at school and his teacher said that he seemed "slightly dyslexic". I have spent time with my child and I refused to believe what she said, I looked around for books that started with simple words and small sentences and gave the child a sense of achievement. I found my answer with these amazing books. These books focus on giving meaning to each sound with small words and sentences, gradually building the child's confidence to tackle longer sentences and then bigger words. I realized that my son is as good as any other child in his class, he just didn't like writing, he loves reading these books as he feels this is something that he can do by himself. I would strongly recommend these books to parents who want their children to start reading and have fun with it.

The art is a huge turn-off but I had heard good things about BOB and decided to give it a try. My 5 year old grasped the concept of the books immediately and started reading basic words, almost overnight. I've never seen anything like it. He devoured the whole set and built a foundation for reading that I don't think I could have developed for him on my own.

Bought this boxset for my 4 year old who is just beginning to read. It is perfect as every word is just 3 letters. I found it frustrating with many other books that claim they are for beginner reads and contain 4 and 5 letter words. With my help, my son can read every word in these books. I will probably buy the other sets as well.

These books were decodable, but I found the language structure was really awkward. Some of the sentences didn't make sense (e.g. The bag had a dog), and the stories didn't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Overall, they seemed dense and hard to read.

Even though this book is recommended for ages 4 plus, my 3 1/2 year old loves these books. It has really made him want to learn about letters and how they can make words. Teaching him to read with these books was a breeze. Worth the money for sure.

I have a four-year-old that's known the alphabet and which letter makes which sound for two years, but I was unable to make him sit and sound out words until I got the Bob books. The stories aren't deep and moving, but what can you do using only three letter words? It would be nice if it were illustrated more, but maybe it would detract from the words. Anyhow, it got my kid reading a bit just as I was hoping and helped build confidence in his ability sound out words on his own.

Really pleased with these. Bought a few sets for our daughter who was struggling with getting started reading. In a few days she was super excited and proud of herself. Just what we needed. These books are great at making such subtle changes , but in a way that the reader progresses exponentially. Fantastic.

My son loves them.
We bought set 1 as well. He has been resistant at reading himself - once he made it through one of the early books in set 1, he was hooked. The books do a nice job in progressing slowly to build confidence with different words and word structures.
