Review

"Forget Dick and Jane. Your beginning reader needs Bob Books® to succeed."
--cpamomva.blogspot.com

"Tiny enough to sneak in a very full diaper bag, we are enjoying them here, there, and everywhere."
-- needsnewbatteries.blogspot.com

"They are a wonderful addition to a home library, school library, or a homeschool library. I love the smiles on my daughters' faces when they have succeeded in reading a book--that's priceless!"
-- ourgaggleofgirls.com

"Bob Books® made our children into avid readers. Best investment I ever made."
-- The Lewiston Tribune

From the Author

At Bob Books, we emphasize that learning to read should be gentle and easy. This means that letters and concepts are introduced slowly and in a way that kids can understand, with plenty of repetition and opportunity for achievement. Learning to read is surprisingly complex, but Bob Books progress gradually and gently, helping children achieve early reading success and setting a foundation for a lifetime of strong literacy skills. Our method of meeting children where they are on their path to reading, is the easiest and most effective method, versatile enough to use both at home and in the classroom.

Feeling overwhelmed with the task of teaching your child to read?

The good news is that you don't have to know reading theory to use Bob Books. Teaching your child to read using Bob Books will not feel like teaching. Bob Books provide a step-by-step program to gently guide your child through the early stages of reading.
At each level, books are carefully crafted to meet the needs of a particular stage in a child's reading development. Learning to read with Bob Books assures children success from their very first reading experience. Your child will amaze you with how quickly they can go from needing help, to reading all by themselves.

Don't Push

Not all children are ready to read at the same age. Be sensitive to your child's learning style and reading readiness. Practice together, sounds out words and play games. Take many small steps, and be patient. One day you'll be surprised and delighted to discover your child is a reader.

This is easy!

A confident reader is a reader for life. That's why Bob Books sets were designed to give your child early reading confidence - so that they will love to read!

Make it FUN!

Other early literacy programs can teach your child to "memorize" words or "perform" reading well, but Bob Books is not meant to be a chore. Best of all, there are so many ways to make it enjoyable for your child. Try the activities that come with the sets, use silly voices while reading together and make up songs.


We wish your young learner much success and happiness as he or she enters the great adventure of reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teaching your little one to read? Buy these there great!
Reviewed in the United States on January 5, 2020
These are just the greatest books! I bought these for my older two children as they were learning to read, and lost them in a move. Didn’t even hesitate to rebuy with my third child. These are a must! I always started my children on Beginning Readers set 1. Totally worth it to see the pride in learning!!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifesaver- My kindergartner reads with confidence
Reviewed in the United States on July 11, 2020
These books are amazing! My 6 year old missed a lot of school due to COVID-19. Kindergarten is so fundamental. I was so nervous about her reading skills. These books take the cake. They are a lifesaver. My sweet girl could finally enjoy reading again. She reads with confidence. They even have the words listed in the back of the books. We always preview those first and talk about word families. I ordered Set 2 to begin with. Lifesaver!!!!
