Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years! This phonics-based set introduces long vowels and helps developing readers gently take the final step toward reading chapter books.

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!"®

The stories in Bob Books Long Vowels focus on long vowels, including plenty of practice with silent e. They also introduce longer words and word endings such as -ed and -ing. These Stage 3 books have more pages than those in Stages 1 and 2, building reading endurance and expanding the vocabulary of maturing readers. This set prepares kids to graduate to chapter books!

Inside this box you'll find:

  • 8 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books: 16-24 pages each, 52-129 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
  • Longer sentences and stories than previous sets ("She ran as fast as she could.")
  • A list of new long vowel combinations introduced in that book
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words
