Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years! This phonics-based set gives young readers the practice they need to advance to more complex words and sentences.

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!"®

Developing readers will love these fun stories! While Bob Books Complex Words still uses short vowels and repetition to keep the text decodable, the longer books in this phonics-based learn-to-read set introduce more complex words, new long vowel teams, and word endings such as -ed and -ly. The playful stories engage kids and provide a new challenge to advance their skills.

Inside the box you'll find:

  • 8 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books: 16-24 pages each, 12-78 unique words per book, sized perfectly for little hands
  • A parent guide with tips for helping your child learn to read

Each book includes:

  • Repetition of words and sounds, which helps children decode the text
  • Simple sentences with more complex words ("Jim slipped into the pond.")
  • A list of new consonant blends and vowel combinations introduced in that book
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words

Guided Reading Levels: E, F, G Lexile Measure: 60L - 490L Bob Books Level: Stage 3
