The genius brainchild of a teacher, the BOB Books series is designed to help children easily build basic reading skills, without it feeling like a chore. These books introduce your child to the alphabet, sounds, word families, and much more with simple phrases like "Sam sat" or "The cat ran zig zag" that make use of repetition. In fact, these books are often the very first ones children can finish on their own!

A go-to for parents with kids in preschool to second grade, each book in the series features a fun, simple story, as well as bright illustrations to turn your child into an avid reader. There is a book set for any level your early reader is at, and for extra practice, you can pick out BOB Books that focus on certain topics like long vowels, sight words, or rhyming words. It's the perfect step-by-step guide to reading success.
