Book Review- Bob Books First

By Bobby Lynn Maslen
Illustrated by John R Maslen
Published by Scholastic
Released April 2000
Ages 4-8
Source: bought
5 stars- I HIGHLY recommend as this series has been huge help in teaching my son to read.

Twelve books for beginning readers with consistent sounds. Introduces all letters except "Q." Bob Books was developed as a step-by-step, book-by-book program to guide your child gently through the early stages of reading. Each level addresses a stage in a child's reading development.

I was recommended this series by my sister in law who raved about how it helped her to teach my nephew to read. With my son being so eager to start reading, I had bought other beginning readers that didn't capture his attention like this series. Within a day of starting this series, he was already recognizing words and reading. This box set comes with 12 easy to read books. There is a series of 5 box sets. I plan on purchasing the other 4 sets shortly. I can't rave enough about the Bob Books. They are simple, easy to read with simplistic illustrations and are a valuable reading tool for both parents and children.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
