It's Bob time!!!

After the Carpool lady came and grabbed the kids this morning George and I watched some TV in my bed and then I got into the shower.

When I came out she was lounging at the foot of my bed "reading" Big Bear Small Bear. She wasn't quite as accurate as Butterfly was that one time (sorry couldn't find it again) but she did a great job "reading" it and sounding out the few words she attempted.

I took her activity as the green light go ahead to bring out the Bob Books. (Safire I would totally recommend these for Butterfly they will be perfect.)

I dug through the bookshelves and found book 1 and sure enough she read the whole thing! It appears that she is a little bit more like Jr. with sounding out rather than Fred who memorized everything at first glance.

She was so proud of herself that we called Moga and George read her the book. A few of the words tripped her up they just weren't spelled the way she's been pronouncing them. :) T-H-E spells the. It's something everyone of my kids just fights with!

What are the Bob books? Sorry
Fred had the right idea, memorize 'em, there is NO way to sound out those dern th words!

Way to go George! (And really, B was not reading, she had just memorized it.) The Bob books look very cute! I'll have to look into some.
