Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years! This set of phonics-based, easy-to-read stories features silly animal characters -- perfect for kids in kindergarten and first grade.

Bob Books Animal Stories are filled with fun animal characters, from a pig who is a picky eater to a rabbit who loves to dress up. These charming books engage young readers while they practice their reading skills. Each story uses one-syllable words with consistent short vowels, which help keep the text decodable and build kids’ confidence. Longer animal names and sight words sprinkled throughout add just the right amount of challenge.

Inside the box you'll find:

  • 12 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books: 12 pages each, 18-28 unique words per book, sized perfectly for little hands
  • A parent guide with tips for helping your child learn to read

Each book includes:

  • Decodable text: Mostly three- and four-letter words with short vowels that can be sounded out (eggs, mop, slug)
  • Simple sentences (Pig has buns and jam.)
  • Limited sight words (saw, car, mouse)
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words
