Set 4: Complex Words

By Bobby Lynn Maslen & John Maslen

Readers at this level are able to tackle longer sentences and longer books but still love the accomplishment of reading a book all the way through. Bob Books Set 4 continues with our incremental introduction of phonics and sight words. With careful pacing, we introduce more blends, more sight words and longer words.

Even though stories are longer, the simple narrative and design help children focus their skills on decoding and sight words. The delightful illustrations and humor help keep young readers engaged with the more challenging material.

Inside the box you’ll find:
  • 8 easy-to-read books, 16-24 pages each
  • Many four and five letter words (one syllable).
  • Many consonant blends (such as nd, sn, st, ck)
  • A few vowel combinations (such as ou, ee, oo)
  • Up to 150 words per book
