Book Description

May 1 2006 Bob Books (Book 1)
Teach a child letter sounds with Bob Books Set 1. With four letters in the first story, children can read a whole book. Consistent new sounds are added gradually, until young readers have read books with all letters of the alphabet (except Q). Short vowels and three-letter words in simple sentences make Bob Books Set 1 a great confidence builder. With little books, come big success.

2.0 out of 5 stars Decodable, but meaningless May 19 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars It worked! April 5 2013
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for early readers July 19 2012
By Brenda
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars As advertised March 31 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied March 3 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was an excellent choice over the other phonic books. Very basic for a struggling reader. The word choice as well as stories are excellent. Will definitely recommend this one for any kid starting to read

5.0 out of 5 stars BOB books first! Feb. 26 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Our 4yr. old comes in from school and grabs her Bob Books BEFORE the I-pad.
She is breezing through them, and is thriving on the congratulations as she completes each one.
As a former Kindergarten teacher, I appreciate the way the authors have managed to construct the little plots and stories from simple three-letter words. Try it some time!
