Timberdoodle's review
Those who have loved the Pathway series have begged us to find more. While it is hard to beat the sincere wholesomeness of an Amish textbook, we trust that you will find Reading to Learn equally appealing.

While the Pathway series shows life from an Amish perspective, shunning electricity and cars, the Reading to Learn series is from a Conservative Mennonite viewpoint, so nonresistance and modest behavior are two of the many sterling qualities that shine forth. Although some families will insist on using this series as a reading program, I think that they are just as valuable as age-appropriate wholesome reading material.

Be forewarned: like Pathway, Reading to Learn seems to be more advanced than your typical government school readers, so you may need to ease your beginning readers into these books. Each hardback book contains short stories with a sprinkling of poetry. Enjoy!

Fantastic Reader! October 19, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buckeye, AZ United States  
My daughter loved this reader!  She couldn't wait to read the next story.  Each story was virtuous, wholesome, and inspiring to do right.  I appreciate a reader that edifies the character of a child as it strengthens their reading ability.

They make GREAT gifts!! November 3, 2008
Reviewer: Karen D. from Groton, CT  
This series of Mennonite readers is wonderful!!  Plenty of challenging words in an interesting format means both my daughter and I, as her teacher, were satisfied.  I have bought several books in this series, and will continue to do so!!!  They also make GREAT gifts!

Highly recommended! October 27, 2008
Reviewer: Hilary B. from Edgewater, MD  
The Reading to Learn Readers are books that our family cherishes. We have used these not as  reading program, but simply as wholesome reading. My children are challenged by the text, yet seem to come away from these much more calm and focused on the way God calls us to live. The wording is perfect for the designated age. The stories always grip their attention and leave them thinking about the story long after it has been read. Highly recommended!

My daugher rereads them all the time! October 17, 2008
Reviewer: Karen N. from Roanoke, TX  
We have used the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade Christian Light readers, as well as the Pathway Readers for those grades.  My daughter loves the Christian Light readers SO much that she keeps them in her book basket and rereads them all the time;  she does not want me to let others borrow them because she loves them so much.  She really enjoyed the Pathway Readers, but does not mind if I lend those out; she generally does not reread those books.
