This is a mixed review which I don't do often The books are weird and I don't love them but I think they really might work That's the nutshell now the review!I loved the IDEA of the Bob Books and eagerly ordered them when I decided dd2 (a bit older than 5) was ready for reading I made flashcards to go with the books and a reading chart so we could do a sticker for each book and at last we sat down to readDd2 hated the books from the get-go "It's not a real book!" she said because they are small books bound with staples The stories when she could actually read them were short monosyllabic and uninspiring And we found the artwork despite other reviewers having loved it just plain weirdBut we kept at it despite a slow start and occasional tears With the help of the Starfall site and Explode the Code dd2 began to grasp the concept of "sounding out" words and it all began to sink in By the time we'd finished Book 12 of Set 1 although it was far from a triumphant moment dd2 was pretty proud of herselfIt's now about 6 months later and we're about midway through Set 2 Dd2 is definitely a reader now though she still doesn't read on her own outside of the Bob books and other schoolworkThe stories don't get much better in Set 2 and the artwork doesn't improve either The characters are still gangly lumpy and poorly drawn - and they still have boring monosyllable names These are strange little books My 3-year-old loves to "pretend" he's reading them picking up the book and saying dull things like "Bob sat on cat"But in our case these weird books seem to have worked I usually either love a product to death or hate it with a passion I don't love OR hate these books but I haven't found anything better and dd2 has sort of gotten used to them so I plan to keep using them We have Set 3 already and dd2 is actually getting a little excited asking me when we're going to be ready to start those onesI wouldn't invest in all the sets at once in case you don't like them much but if you're just starting out on your child's reading journey I'd consider Set 1 a worthwhile investment just to see if it works for you

We borrowed the books available from the library a few years ago when the last child was learning to read. They only a few of the books, not even entire sets, so I decided to buy my own this time.

I checked out some Bob Books from my library and my son really did well with them, but had to turn them in before he finished the set. So i figured this was a good investment

How many books in this set?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 12 books are in the set
They are divided into 3 color groups(4 books to each color group)
Each color group will progress the student further along in the alphabet
What are the dimensions of the actual Bob Books (not the box)?
User on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 5.5" x 4.25"

They're wider than they are tall.
