Bob Books Review and Giveaway!

I'm sure you have all heard of Bob Books, right? 
They are published by Scholastic and are great for beginning readers. Bob Books introduce reading step by step and really help to get children excited about learning how to read. Children feel very successful when they read the books, which helps to build their confidence and self esteem.

Recently, I was asked to review a set of books, of my choice, from Bob Books and I jumped at the chance. I have several sets of books already, that I have collected over the years, and my students absolutely love them.

I chose to review the Rhyming Words Set
Learning to recognize and read rhyming words is HUGE in kindergarten, so I thought this would be a great addition to my library.

This set comes with 10 small books, each 12 pages long. 
All of the stories contain mostly two and three letter words that can be sounded out. All of the rhyming words have endings that both sound the same and are spelled the same.
In addition to the 12 books, the set also includes 40 word family puzzle cards. I'll be putting these out at my phonics station. 
I know my students will thoroughly enjoy reading these books and I look forward to watching them become confident and enthusiastic readers!

Bob Books has generously allowed me to give away a set of books to a lucky follower. I'm sure most of you already have some sets in your classroom already, so I definitely encourage you to click here and peruse their website. It is very user friendly. They even have a book finder quiz that will help you find the right set for your students' needs.

Once you figure out the set you would like to win, just come back here and enter my giveaway using the rafflectoper. One of the entries is to leave a comment below, stating the set you'd like to win. This entry is mandatory. Please enter this giveaway with integrity, as this contest will be closely monitored.

Good luck to everyone!

  15. I LOVE , LOVE, LOVE Bob Books. They helped me teach my own kids to read and I've used them in my classroom. My favorite one is the sight words and then the rhyme books, which for some is so difficult. Maybe because they aren't watching enough Seseame Street....
