Bob Books Introduces Sight Words Box Sets! Review & GIveaway (2 Winners)

Chances are if you are a Parent of a school aged Child, you have heard of Bob Books. I had heard many excellent things about them and how they really helped young children learn how to read. It's actually a #1 Best Selling Learn To Read program! Can't get better than that!

Recently Bob Books introduced two brand new sets that focuses on learning and practicing Sight Words. Sight Words are words that are recognized by sight, rather than sounded out, to achieve reading fluency. These are some of the most commonly used words in the English language and are often not ones that we can pronounce phonetically (words such as out, was, and are are good examples)

Sight Words from Bob Books are available in 2 different sets - Kindergarten and First Grade. Each Box Set comes with 10 Original Books, 30 Flash Cards, and a Parent Guide to help you and your Child practice these words in a fun and educational way!

We were sent a box of both the Kindergarten and the First Grade Site Words books to review for ourselves. Like I mentioned, there are 10 books in each set. Each book is short enough (about 12 pages) for your Child to practice reading without getting frustrated or bored. It is very age appropriate, as the words are very simple - usually 3-4 letters only. And the simple illustrations are just enough to let the story come to life and make it more interesting to the reader.



Of course my 3 year old is a little too young to be reading this on her own, but she really enjoys me reading the stories to her aloud. But after seeing how Bob books works, I am definitely going to go pick up the pre-reading skills box set, perfect for someone her age that is just starting out.

With school right around the corner (or maybe it already started!) this set is the perfect tool in helping your Child learn to read. Even now as an adult I can remember what it felt like as a Child when I was able to read a book on my own. Your Child will surely feel proud of themselves and ready for school with help from Bob Books!
