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!

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
