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 Books kids can actually read in K I have been looking for books to practise reading with my 5 year old - lots of step 1 or beginning phonics type books.  They are all way too difficult.  These books are great - focus on sight words and other simple words that can easily be sounded out.  My child is so excited to read a page herself.  Bought the next pack I liked them so much.
