Created by a teacher, Bob Books have been helping children learn to read for more than forty years! The fun read-aloud stories in My First Bob Books: Pre-Reading Skills introduce literacy skills to the youngest children.

My First Bob Books: Pre-Reading Skills offers children and their parents a simple and satisfying structure for getting ready to read. The silly read-aloud stories follow Sally the Circle and her friends to gradually introduce concepts that are the building blocks of reading: shapes, sorting, patterns, and sequencing.

Inside the box you'll find:

  • 12 small, hilarious books to read aloud to your child: 12 pages each. Friendly, simple illustrations add humor and support the early literacy skills in the stories.
  • A parent guide with tips, games, and activities to build your child's skills

The books explore these concepts:

  • Identifying shapes, which prepares kids to recognize letters
  • Sorting, which strengthens symbol identification and problem-solving skills
  • Learning simple patterns, which builds awareness of letter groups and sight words
  • Sequencing, which strengthens the ability to predict how stories flow
