Bobby Lynn Maslen, Bob Books founder, was inspired to bring her passion of learning to read to children. This passion lead her to start writing beginning readers with her young students. She soon discovered that using her books, students loved to learn to read. She wanted to share this love of learning with students all over the world, and Bob Books were born. Bob Book's simple yet proven method of teaching reading skills using a phonics-based approach has helped millions of children learn to read.
Many people touched by Bobby's life have expressed a desire to give back. In memory of Bobby Lynn Maslen and her love of teaching children to read, Bob Books has partnered with JumpStart, a well known non-profit organization that leverages college students to serve under-resourced children in education and reading.
