Scholastic is the most trusted name in learning and Bob Books has become the most trusted name in learning to read. For years, parents trying to teach their children to read have flocked to the Bob Books boxed sets, making it the #1 bestselling learn-to-read program in the United States.

Now, for the first time ever, young readers can graduate from the Bob Books boxed sets, to these Bob Books easy readers. In this first story, brother and sister (Jack and Anna) think getting a new puppy will be a lot of fun. But they soon discover it's a lot of work, too!
