My five-year old feels like a "big boy" now!
Customer review by TwiBecca
This set is the natural progression from the Bob Books Set 1, and a great one at that. My son loves that he can read a "whole book" (each set comes with 12 small books inside). And we both enjoy discussing the questions/topics from the back cover of each book - his answers let me know that he was not only reading the words on the page but comprehending what the characters have accomplished within the realm of each book.
I have never seen my son beam with such pride over an accomplishment before - saying "The End" at the end of each book elicits a broad smile and an assured look.
Mostly, I love that each book builds from the last with similar, but different, sounds and a few new "site" words that must be memorized for each - so he uses a combination of phonics (sounding the words out) and just plain word memory (for words like "the" and "was" that don't sound like they are spelled).
These books have been the best investment yet. Great value for all that you get.
