These are the BOB books.  The concept was created by Bobby Lynn Maslen and her husband, John.  There are 12 books in each boxed set.

The first box is simple letter sounds, and each successive group builds upon the skills acquired up to that point.

Here are some books from the first two BOB sets.  As you can see, they are not story books, per se; they are skill builders.  The pages can be colored to reinforce the concepts.  This will encourage the children to revisit the pages.

Once your son or daughter has put together some reading skills they can move on to the story books.  These also come in different difficulty levels.

The brightly illustrated pages are great for read alongs.  Soon, they will be able to read the pages alone.


If you have a young or struggling reader, the BOB books might be a great choice for your family.

Find the BOB books on the Scholastic Website.  You can also find Scholastic on Facebook and Twitter.
