My First Bob Books: Pre-Reading Skills

Lynn Maslen Kertell

By Bobby Lynn Maslen & John Maslen

Expanding on the foundation sets that have made Bob Books such a success, My First Bob Books Pre-Reading Skills is a introducing Bob Books' proven teaching tools to children who aren't quite ready for Bob Books Set 1.

My First Bob Books Pre-Reading Skills offer children and their parents simple and satisfying tools that build an important foundation for reading readiness. Sally the Circle and her friends introduce important skills that prepare your child for reading. Your youngsters will never know that they’re learning as they follow the adventures of Sally, Seth and Tanner – but you will.

My First Bob Books Pre-Reading Skills introduces these important pre-literacy skills in a story format:

  • Identifying basic shapes in preparation for letter recognition
  • Sorting, classifying and symbol identification to build important problem-solving skills
  • Recognizing simple patterns to create awareness of letter groups and sight words
  • Sequencing to strengthen the ability to predict how stories flow
  • Inside the box you'll find:
  • 12 books for you to read to your child, 12 pages each
  • Four pre-reading skills
  • Literacy games and teaching hints on the inside of each book cover


My 3yr old was not really interested in watching his brother read. I ordered the Pre-Reading set for my younger son and now he is very excited. He likes having his own books and he is learning shapes, patterns, and sequences while learning to follow a story. He looks forward to reading 'his' books. – Esther
