I have used Bob Books Set 1 and now these and they are both good for encouraging young readers. These are small enough for young kids to hold and it's very satisfying for them to be able to finish a book by themselves.

Format: Paperback
These are simply the finest first reading books on the market today! Each page has a sentence such as, �Peg had a big cap,� along with a simple illustration. At the end of each book is a list of unique words contained in the book (usually about 20-40) listed by the vowel sound. The set of 12 books also comes with a teacher/parent guide that give the story behind the Bob Books, hints for teaching your child to read, and questions you can ask the child about each book to help with comprehension and enjoyment.
This set of books really hooked my daughter on reading. We gave these to her when she started Kindergarten and she would read them on the way to school. The nice thing about having 12, is that when she mastered one of them, her �reward� was to get the next! These books provided her first good experience with reading.

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.

We have been educating at home since 1993... and one of the first "Jewels" we discovered were the Bob books. It was hard to find beginner readers in the library that focused on all short-vowel sounds or that contained all three-letter words. These books quickly build self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment because they are short and easy to read. We have also purchased Bob books as gifts and are now purchasing them for our 5 and 3 year old daughters. They love them as much as the older children did... and now they offer several "levels" to grow into.

These are the absolute best early reader books I have found anywhere! Short vowels, simple words and sounds to start off and then each book adds a little more so your child can have early success, then gradually move up to harder words and eventually long vowels. There's nothing else like them. Great for early phonics practice. Closest thing to the books we learned on. (Remember, "See Dot run. See Spot run. See Dot and Spot run.", etc?) These are the first books every child should read. Try one set, then buy them all.

My five year old son was becoming very frustrated with trying to read the supposed "first readers" at our library. I was equally frustrated, as some of them even included contractions which are very confusing for a beginner reader! The Bob Books are truly for the first time reader. My son was able to sound out the words and start to feel good about his ability to learn to read. I definitely recommend these books as the ultimate starting point for helping your child to learn to read!

My neighbor let me borrow this particular set of Bob Books when I mentioned that our 6-year-old was still struggling with reading simple words. I had never heard of Bob Books before, but I have since bought 2 more sets! My daughter enjoys the stories and loves reading books to her sister, father and me. It really boosted her self-confidence and I feel she's better prepared for entering 1st grade this fall. I will definitely recommend these books to other parents.

The Bob books are superior early reading books. They are gentle stories, using a tight, controlled vocabulary and delightfully simple line drawings for illustrations. I have used these books, for years, for independent reading for my first grade students and my own child as well. These wonderful, little books are appealing to young children, more so than any other books that I have seen. You and your young ones will love the Bob books!
