Sarah and BOB

I know I am a little late posting this. But I've been trying to get a picture of Sarah reading these BOB books all summer.

But since she knows I want a picture of her doing it, she won't pose for one. And if she even sees me coming towards her with a camera while she is reading she gets up in a huff.

But I have persisted because I don't want her to be mad at me in 20 years when she is looking over the blog and realizes that I posted a picture of Peter reading after preschool.

So in the interest of fairness, equality and me not getting yelled at when I'm 60, here is a picture of Sarah reading.

I got these BOB books for her at the end of preschool and they are absolutely perfect for a beginning reader. The sentences are very short (no more than three or four very short words), the words in each book have the same sounds, there is a lot of repetition of the words, and the books themselves are very short.

It's very easy for a beginning reader to get frustrated, tired, bored, or a combination of all three and that doesn't happen with these books. She feels a huge sense of accomplishment when she completes one of these.Look out kindergarten! Here we come!
