Best investment I ever made." -- The Lewiston Tribune From the Author At Bob Books, we emphasize that learning to read should be gentle and easy. This means that letters and concepts are introduced slowly and in a way that kids can understand, with plenty of repetition and opportunity for achievement. Learning to read is surprisingly complex, but Bob Books progress gradually and gently, helping children achieve early reading success and setting a foundation for a lifetime of strong literacy skills. Our method of meeting children where they are on their path to reading, is the easiest and most effective method, versatile enough to use both at home and in the classroom. Feeling overwhelmed with the task of teaching your child to read? The good news is that you don't have to know reading theory to use Bob Books. Teaching your child to read using Bob Books will not feel like teaching. Bob Books provide a step-by-step program to gently guide your child through the early stages of reading. At each level, books are carefully crafted to meet the needs of a particular stage in a child's reading development. Learning to read with Bob Books assures children success from their very first reading experience. Your child will amaze you with how quickly they can go from needing help, to reading all by themselves. Don't Push Not all children are ready to read at the same age. Be sensitive to your child's learning style and reading readiness. Practice together, sounds out words and play games. Take many small steps, and be patient. One day you'll be surprised and delighted to discover your child is a reader. This is easy! A confident reader is a reader for life. That's why Bob Books sets were designed to give your child early reading confidence - so that they will love to read! Make it FUN! Other early literacy programs can teach your child to "memorize" words or "perform" reading well, but Bob Books is not meant to be a chore. Best of all, there are so many ways to make it enjoyable for your child. Try the activities that come with the sets, use silly voices while reading together and make up songs. We wish your young learner much success and happiness as he or she enters the great adventure of reading.
