Bob Books Set 3 - Word Families by Bobby Lynn Maslen (Author) and John R. Maslen (Illustrator)
A natural progression from Bob Books Sets 1 and 2, in Set 3 kids encounter stories with longer endings; y, ed, and ing. Longer words with 4 or 5 letters can still be sounded out; repetition of sounds and words throughout the books really help children succeed as well.
Sight words (listed in each book so you can point them out) become easier as children learn to anticipate words in the context of the story. Sentences are limited to one or two per page. This gentle, progressive approach really appeals to kids and builds early confidence and skills.
In Bob Books Set 3 - Word Families, children progress gently into the next steps of reading. Consonant blends, endings, and a few sight words advance reading skills and create more complex stories. Use of word families make longer stories more manageable. Children love the eight books and hilarious pictures. They delight in two fun-to-do activity books.
