BOB BOOKS 101

Bob books are perfect for emergent readers and it gives them immense confidence as it tackles one reading sound/concept at a time. The satisfaction when the little reader has finished reading a full book is absolutely worth the money paid.

I highly, highly recommend using Bob Books for little readers, so I wanted to write a very clear explanation for all of you, so you don’t make the same mistakes I did when ordering these online.

Bob Book Sets

Bob Book Collections
💭

 If you ask me, the pre-reader collection can be entirely skipped. We personally didn’t find this culturally relevant for a Indian child under 4 to grasp. So, collection 1 is where we begun. With few words per page and plenty of repetitive vocabulary, these little books give new readers a sense of success and reinforce the idea that reading is fun. I remember the first time Zoe read a book all by himself – That sense of pride and victory was just unimaginable. This milestone is a pretty important one in our life and that’s why we cherish it so much, and have a soft corner for Bob books.

Where to buy? Most bookstores have it. One of our sets is from @bookberries on instagram.

You can always find deals on bargain book hunt.
