BOB Books are our favorite beginning readers; the story lines are fun, the books are sturdy, and these tales are sized perfectly for little hands!
I remember the oh-happy-day when Elijah first read this book. He was so proud. The same for Simon who proclaimed, “I just read a book!”
When I discovered how much my boys loved the BOB Books series, I decided to create some printable activity pages to enhance the reading skills they were learning.
These printable activity pages are for parents who want to give their children interactive fun at home. Each printable set includes activities that will keep children engaged and interested in learning new words and new reading skills.
You can find my entire collection of BOB Books Printables here.
