    #2Bob Books Set 1: Beginning Readers

    Bob Books Set 1: Beginning Readers

    Bob Books Set 1: Beginning Readers is great for teaching letter sounds. With four letters in the first story, children can read a whole book. Consistent new sounds are added gradually until readers have read books with all letters of the alphabet (except Q). Short vowels and three-letter words in simple sentences make Bob Books Set 1 a fun confidence builder.

It has the benefit of being based on the authors own childhood, so your child will know this is a real person who went on to a successful life, so it makes a great uplifting story to show your child."

    "I bought this for my dyslexic children, but I didn't really like its message in the end. I don't really like the idea of teaching my kid to deny their difficulty is a disability. I want them to be empowered, yes, but realistic. It's a disability, it's a challenge to be understood, worked with, and lived with, it's not "smart in different ways." It's like calling a physically handicapped person "differently able." No, it's less able - don't be condescending in the guise of being accepting! Pass."

    "This book was great in helping me understand ways to help my dyslexic challenge. He was very encouraged by the stories of people who've been successful while suffering from dyslexia. I wouldn't recommend a book for someone who is dealing with dyslexia themselves."
