Book Review & Giveaway- Bob Books For Your iPhone & iPad

By Bob Books Reading Magic
Released on December 6th, 2010
Ages 4 yrs +
Source- Bob Books
5 Stars- I Highly Recommend This

I am a HUGE supporter and fan of Bob Books. These books were instrumental in me teaching my son to read and what I'm using to teach my daughter how to read now. I was so thrilled when they contacted me to let me know they have applications through iTunes for my iPhone & iPad. Now I can take the books and games with me where I go.

I know, that sounds lame, but I'd much rather have my kids doing something educational in the car or while we're waiting in line somewhere. The Bob Books Reading Magic application is an all in one package as it has games and it teach kids how to read, which they do learning the sounds of letters as they sound out the words, and they learn how to spell. The game reads the words with them and as your child puts the words, the picture (right out of the Bob Book) comes to life in color, like this picture here-

You can view & purchase the application here

I'm not sure how is more excited to have this, me or them. This is already a hit with my kids. I highly recommend adding this affordable down load to your iTunes collection. Thank you to Bob Books, we are giving away a iPhone FREE down load to the application linked above!!

  1. Oh gosh this is great. My six year old is in Kindergarten and struggling with reading sounds try as I might to help her. We use a box of full sized Bob for reading to bed.
    Thank you!

  2. Wow these are a really great idea.With s second child working on the reading scene a reading aide like this, especially in the car would rock.
    Thank you for putting it out there and letting us know about this wonderful app. I wonder how I missed it ?!?

  3. I love (love) the Bob Books, they are one of my favourite hand sells. Thanks so much for the heads up on the app!!!

the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
