Bob Books Plus by Bobby Lynn Maslen, John R. Maslen

What can be more satisfying to a child than to close a book and say, "I read it all by myself!" This series of books for the very beginner will have children beaming with pride. Instead of relying on large print and pictures to teach children to read, Bob Books employs one of the oldest methods around: phonics. Each book focuses on a few vowel or consonant sounds and limits the story to just a few words. For example, in Book 1, Mat, the only words used are "Mat," "Sam," "on," and "sat." In this way, the novice will learnùand rememberùa few sounds at a time. To reinforce these sounds, each book starts with a guide showing the letters that will be introduced with an accompanying word example and cheerful picture. All the Bob Books are illustrated with humorous line drawings that beg to be colored. Included also is a guide to parents and teachers, plus two easy-to-assemble finger puppets and a cardboard stage, for readers to act out the stories they just readùall on their own. The silly stories, gentle pace, and overall friendliness of the Bob Books will make reading a happy pastime. PreschoolùGrade 1.
