Many of us are about to send our kids to preschool or school in the next few weeks. The tone has changed from Summertime activities to talk of back to school.
Most preschool and Kindergarten kids are learning to read or are about to begin reading. One way to encourage children to start reading or become more confident with reading is to provide them with age appropriate books they can read easily.
Bob Books by Scholastic are a series of books that are easy to read with pictures on each page and use sight words on each page of the book. Each Bob Book set has 10 books and 30 flashcards, both of which have 30 sight words in them.

More about the prize pack-
From the #1 bestselling learn-to-read program come two brand-new sets focused on learning and practicing Sight Words.
Sight Words are words that are recognized by sight rather than sounded out, in order to achieve reading fluency. They are the most frequently used words in the English language, and are often unable to be read phonetically (“was”, “are”, and “out” are examples). Bob Books Sight Words feature the top Sight Words in two sets – one for kindergarten and one for first grade – in order to allow parents and children to read, learn, and practice easily and enjoyably.
Each Sight Words box includes 10 original books, 30 flashcards, and a parent guide. Soon your child will be saying “I read the whole book!”®
Thanks again to Scholastistic for this great Back to School Reading Prize Pack.
