Millions of kids have learned to read with Bob Books. Now Bob Books is available on the iPhone and the iPad with Bob Books Reading Magic!

Start your child reading with this phonics-based interactive game. Even very young children love the simple drag-and-drop interface. Your favorite Bob Books characters and full-color animations encourage kids along the path of learning to read.

Bob Books Reading Magic continues Bob Books’ commitment to bringing children a satisfying, successful first reading experience, with easy first steps, wholesome values, authentic hand-drawn illustrations, and beautiful full-color animations.

Bob Books Reading Magic will show your child how to:

-Make the connection between letters and sounds.
-Sound out simple words.
-Spell the words they’ve read.

The game includes twelve scenes for a total of 32 words. Four game levels provide increasing challenges to children as they play.

Bob Books Reading Magic follows the same method and principles as the #1 best-selling Bob Books series. Bob Books were created to lead children to the ah-ha moment when letters first turn into words. By slowly introducing new letter sounds, using consistency, repetition and stories that fit short attention spans, your child will quickly find his or her own ah-ha moment. This is the reading magic of Bob Books. Soon your child will join over 4 million children who can proudly say, “I read the whole book!”®

Bob Books Reading Magic was created in collaboration with Learning Touch, the makers of the best-selling First Words series of learning-to-read apps. It marries First Words' breakthrough learning-to-read interface with the beloved characters and stories of Bob Books.

Warning before you buy

I just started teaching my son the Bob Books level one collection and saw the lite version of this app. My son loved it so I purchased the app thinking I was getting the whole level one collection. Turns out, they only give you about 12 or so pages from the collection and 4 levels using the same 12 pages. That said, we really like the app but wish it had the complete collection

The 2 stars is because the app makers could of created the whole collection or told people what they were buying ( I feel misled) and the app at $3.99 is expensive for little content.


This is a fabulous app! Very educational and fun. Both my 5 and 3 year olds love it! I think my 5 year old Is getting the most out of it, since she's reading the BOB books now, but I was happy to see my 3 year old enjoying as well. The best part - no advertising in-app purchases directly to my kids! What you see is what you get, a good quality companion to the BOB Books set.

My granddaughter loves this app!

My granddaughter loves this app. It is helping her with her letters and reading. She loves the colors and the animations. Her favorite is Dot and Dot's hat. She will open the app on her own and play this game for hours. Everywhere she goes, she points out hats!

It is a fun, educational game that keeps her entertained!
