From the #1 bestselling learn-to-read program comes two brand-new sets focused on learning and practicing sight words. Sights words are words that are recognized by sight rather than sounded out, in order to achieve reading fluency. They are the most frequently used words in the English language, and are often unable to be read phonetically. ("Was", "are", and "out" are examples.) Sight words are taught in school beginning in kindergarten, and extend up through early elementary. Teachers often send lists of words home for parents to practice with their children, as readers must ultimately memorize the words in order to read fluently and with full comprehension.

Bob Books: Sight Words feature the top sight words in two sets-one for kindergarten and one for first grade-in order to allow parents and children to read, learn, and practise easily and enjoyably! The leveled sets allow readers the opportunity to reinforce what they've learned over the past year, support what they're currently learning, or prepare for the next school year.

Each box set includes 10 original books (each with 3 new sight words), 30 flash cards, and a parent guide.All Bob Books feature short, satisfying stories that kids want to read again and again; engaging drawings that support-but don't distract from-the text; and a carefully crafted parent guide to using the books and flash cards effectively.

Lynn Maslen Kertell is an author, a designer, and the daughter of Bobby and John Maslen, the creators of the BOB Books. Having spent a lifetime surrounded by the values and humour of the Maslen family, Lynn is happy to be carrying on the BOB Books tradition of helping kids love to learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great works well. The Bob Books are a series of boxed sets designed to help develop skills at different levels and complexities. They are designed to grow with a child as their skills in reading improve. This is the second set we have given our oldest daughter and she loves them. There are 10 books in this specific boxed set: Plums Little Bug Pretty The Sled What Is that? Come In The Old Truck Play Ball Dress Up Before and After 30 Flash Cards of the 30 sights words: are, good, now, ate, he, little, pretty, said, she, will, with, you, my, that, what, come, into, under, make, new, like, play, bring, small, old, find, before, then, long, after The tools combined in this box set are a real aide in helping a child grow and develop their reading skills. The focused repetitions between the flash cards and the same words being a big focus in the books is a well designed and planned tool. One of the things I like best is that in the front cover of each book is a list of the site words focused on in that book, and a parenting tip for helping the child to acquire the new words. This is a great series and with each new one I appreciate them more.
