The BOB Book Sets are for children who are ready to take the first steps into reading. Being able to finish an entire book on their own gives new readers a sense of accomplishment. Created by a literacy expert, BOB Books feature bite-size illustrated stories that use consistency, repetition, and humor to target the needs of emerging readers. This award-winning series is a step-by-step program to guide children through the early stages of reading. This set introduces the important new skills of long vowels and the magical silent E. Childrens' reading vocabularies grow quickly as they finish the longer stories in eight books, 16 to 24 pages. They are proud to be ready for chapter books.
