Bob Books

Early readers were designed to provide the path for children who are ready to take their first steps into reading.  The Foundation Sets work together progressively so that as your child learns to read each book, his or her confidence and ability grows. If your child is not ready for reading, My First Bob Books build pre-reading skills. We recommend that you take our Bookfinder quiz to determine your child’s reading level.   Learn More.   Fun Activities

Brave Writer

Through our user-friendly materials and award-winning online classes, you’ll grow into a competent writing coach, calm your anxious writers, and nourish your aspiring authors.

Kids are tremendously interesting people, even the ones who write poorly. My goal is to help you do your job to draw out the fascinating mind life of your children so that you can capture those precious thoughts in writing. What’s on paper ought to be a fair and insightful representation of all that goes on in your kids’ busy heads. When it is, you and your young writers will love the results.  Brave Writer is designed to enhance the parent-child relationship through the teaching of writing. It is my contention that writers are grown best when students feel supported and free. Parents feel best when they have strategies they can trust to advance their twin goals: peace and progress in the writing process.  Learn More
