Where can I get these or something similar for a reasonable price??

I am looking for an entire set of these for my 4 y/o.

Anyone have any to sell me?

OR

know where I can find them cheap? or used?

OR

Anything similar I can get? Maybe even better?

If you can't tell from the link, here is a descrip of what this is:

These are *SUPER* easy reading books for beginning readers.

Most of these books are about 9-10 pages long, have just 2 sentences or less on each page, all simple, easy words (no more than 4 letters in a word), no difficult sounds (like soft Cs or silent Ks)...

So the story I linked to, reads like this:

Jam

Pam is a cat.

Sam is a cat.

Pam sat on the mat.

Sam sat on the mat.

Jam!

Sam ran.

Pam ran.

Pam is in the jam. Sam is in the jam.

Jam!


.... and each page has plain picture, black & white, line drawing....

This particular book is with cats, one girl cat, one boy cat, they find jam and go eat it and get all messy.

My DS LOVES these little books. He laughs at the pictures. Today he wanted to read this twice in a row - he reads it by himself.

I would really love to get a whole set of them. I only have like 4 or 5.

I don't know if there is a special name for these types of books? a specific category? Or something? I want to find more like these.

The library "easy reader" section is too hard for him. These are perfect.

Since there is no description or anything, I'm not really sure what it is about. Can you describe it and maybe we can help.

The other website - while it looks like the same stuff, online books/cds - has some other content that is seriously awesome and will supplement our curriculum VERY nicely!! Thanks! I prob won't use it for the easy reading part, but will def use some of that material for other stuff with my 6 y/o!

I saw the link. I guess I'm dense because I'm still not sure what it is. Is it just a reader? Or is there something special about this particular reader? There is no description on the page to tell me that. (or am I missing it?)

oooh ok. lol sorry. Apparently I am the dense one. I just ASSumed it would be well-known or something. D'oh!

Anyway, they are *SUPER* easy reading books for beginning readers.

The BOB books would be perfect for him. Our easy reader section was too hard for ours for a while too. I have all the BOB books and the early ones are just like that.

I got mine at Costco. They come out there about once a year. Mine still had a few when I was there recently, but not many. Costco sells them much cheaper and bundled differently and the size of the book is different. But, you can definitely get them on Amazon.

Here is a link: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20


ETA - The pictures in the BOB books are simple also. Stick and shape figures with typically only one color per book. So, most of the picture is black and white, but it has splashes of one color throughout the book

Actually, it turns out Amazon now sells the same sets they used to only sell at Costco. The above is the exact set I was thinking of for him. I can get out a few and double check before you buy that that is the set you want. They are $9.99 at Costco, so not much different. Let me know if you want me to pull mine out or have any questions.
Oh awesome, these are perfect! Thanks SO MUCH! You are always so helpful, Heather!

Happy to help! I always like to read what you have to say also. So, the feeling is mutual.

Did you see I can give you more info if you need it? I added a bunch of ETA's. (I'm famous for editing. )
