We are really enjoying the BOB books! These are perfect starter books. The books have helped to build my daughters confidence and improve her reading skills. I purchased two sets one for home and one for daycare. Eventually I'll be purchasing the rest of the collection. The books were delivered quickly, 2 business days with standard delivery.
My son (4) loves these books. They hold his interest and keep him motivated to learn to read. I think this approach to teaching reading is one of the best I've seen. We really like them. (I especially like how affordable each set is.) I would recommend these with enthusiasm!
MY WIFE AND I BOUGHT THESE BOOKS ON A RECOMMENDATION OF OUR DAUGHTERS KINDERGARTEN TEACHER. THE BOOKS ARE WELL THOUGHT OUT,AND HELP KIDS BUILD ON THEIR WORD RECOGNITION,AND SENTENCE STRUCTURE SKILLS. WE WILL BE GETTING THE OTHER VOLUMES AS WELL.
The BOB books are great beginning readers that focus on the consonant-vowel-consonant words that kids can easily sound out. I used these books with my four-year-old after she could easily read through some sight word books we had. The BOB books work well once your child is ready to move on to words that need to be sounded out.
My son just turned five and will attend kindergarten next year, but with these books, he is already reading the first three!! He is so excited, they are wonderful!! We love them-the drawings could be better but all we care about is that he wants to learn to read more!! One of my professors at school recommended them and I am so glad she did. A definite best investment!!
