Product Description

Developed to guide your child gently through the earliest stages of reading, Bob Books were created to facilitate that ah-ha moment when letters first turn into words. By slowly introducing new letter sounds, using consistency, repetition and stories that fit short attention spans, your child will quickly find his or her way down the path of reading. Each level addresses a stage in reading development; this carefully crafted, simple, and progressive approach to learning assures children success and confidence from their very earliest reading experience. Whereas the short vowels (a, e, i, o and u) are the original stars in Bob Books Sets 1 - 4, readers who have advanced all the way to Set 5 begin learning long vowels, the fascinating new stars of the alphabet.12 books, 12 pages each.

Publisher's Description

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.

The silly stories in Bob Books Long Vowels focus on long vowels, but also provide plenty of practice with silent e, longer words, and word endings such as -ed and -ing. The longer stories build reading endurance and expand the vocabulary of maturing readers. This set prepares kids to graduate to chapter books!

  • 8 small, hilarious, easy-to-read books: 16-24 pages each, 52-129 unique words per book, sized perfectly for little hands

Each book includes:

  • Repetition of words and sounds, which helps children decode the text

  • A list of new long vowel combinations introduced in that book
  • Friendly, simple illustrations that add fun and do not distract from the words
