Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years! This phonics-based learn-to-read box set is perfect for young readers who are still building their skills.

With playful stories, silly illustrations, and a phonics approach based on Science of Reading research, Bob Books keep young readers' confidence high, leading to continued success and a love of reading. Your child will soon join the millions of happy kids who say, "I read the whole book!"®

Bob Books Advancing Beginners builds on the skills learned in the Bob Books Stage 1 box sets. These twelve stories are slightly longer while still using three-letter words and consistent short vowel sounds. This develops the confidence of young readers and helps ensure that they master basic phonics before moving on to more complex skills. Kids love the fun, drama, and surprise in these stories and pictures!

Inside the box you’ll find:

  • 12 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books: 16 pages each, 17-41 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: Three-letter words with short vowels that can be sounded out (big, sun, cap)
  • Simple sentences (Pop had a top hat.)
  • Limited sight words (a, the, was)
  • Slighter longer stories than in the Stage 1 sets, which helps build reading endurance
  • A word list at the back of each book
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words
