Why Bob Books

Bob Books is a true first reader series, designed to make helping your child learn to read simple and straightforward.

Parents and teachers keep coming back to our series, because the clean layout, short words, and simple phonics make learning to read a fun and natural step for a child that knows the alphabet. That’s why Bob Books work so well!

Bob Books was created by a kindergarten teacher that wanted to give young children the tools to cross from learning letters to reading words. Our award-winning beginning reader book sets start slowly and progress naturally from books with three letter words, to books with more than one sentence per page. Because we meet children at the right level, parents are often amazed at how quickly their child is able to sound out words when reading their first Bob Book. It’s like magic! Here is Trevor reading Bob Books for the first time:

Bob Books sets were developed to facilitate that “ah-ha” moment when letters first turn into words. By slowly introducing new letter sounds, using consistency, repetition, and funny stories, your child will quickly find his or her own “ah-ha” moment, just like Trevor. You may not remember learning to read, but now you can share that magic moment with your child.
