What are BOB Books?
A little background trivia: BOB Books were created by Bobby Lynn Maslen and John Maslen. While working in a preschool, Bobby began making the books for her preschoolers to learn how to read. John Maslen, an amazing water-color painter, drew the pictures. They were first published in 1976 and have now become VERY popular among beginning readers. There are even apps for the BOB Books!
BOB Books are used by many to teach reading, even to the young child. Starting with the earliest set, phonics features and sight words are introduced slowly to make it easy for your child to pick up the book and read.

FREE BOB Book Printables
Even though BOB Books are extremely well-known, there simply aren’t many FREE printables to go with them…UNTIL NOW!
Meet the Team: 6 bloggers, including myself, are working to change all of that. The team consists of 3 Dinosaurs, In Lieu of Preschool, Royal Baloo , Rockabye Butterfly, Walking By the Way, and me. And we’ve already begun!
