Bob Books: Sight Words Giveaway!

I am so excited at the chance to host the Bob Books: Sight Words giveaway. I'm a huge fan of these books, as I feel they are valuable tool in helping kids read. I'm saying this from experience, as they helped my son to read. I'm looking forward to sharing these books with TWO winners.

What are Bob Books?
From the #1 bestselling learn-to-read program comes two brand-new sets focused on learning and practicing Sight Words.

Sight Words are words that are recognized by sight rather than sounded out, in order to achieve reading fluency. They are the most frequently used words in the English language, and are often unable to read phonetically ("was", "are", and "out" are examples). Bob Books Sight Words feature the top Sight Words in two sets-one for Kindergarten and one for first grade- in order to allow parents and children to read, learn and practice easily and enjoyably.

Each Sight Words box includes 10 original books, 30 flashcards, and a parent guide. Soon your child will be saying "I can read the whole book!" (quoted from their site)

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