About My First Bob Books® Series

Emergent readers are beginning to expand their understanding of letter-to-sound relation, sight words, and events within a story. By introducing letters gradually, using consistent short vowels, and carefully paced learning, success is possible from the first Bob Book. Bob Books® Sets 3–5 challenge children with longer words, new reading concepts, the introduction of vowels patterns, and the silent "e." Here are a few tips to continue your child's path to reading success!

Alphabet Set

Developed by Lynn Maslen Kertell, these adorable readaloud stories are for youngsters who are just beginning to learn that letters represent sounds. They take children through the entire alphabet by highlighting a few letters, both uppercase and lowercase, in each book. Your child will get the most out of these books when you:
  • Emphasize letter sounds, and letter names
  • Introduce new letters by repeating the ways they are pronounced (say, "buh, buh, bear, B")
  • Make a game of finding words that start with the same sound
