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!

Highly Recommended By Two Eight Year Olds March 20, 2014
Reviewer: Eli  
My children have enjoyed reading this. Though, I ordered it years ago and delayed giving this to my children thinking it was too advanced, my 3rd graders read through them very easily. They highly recommend them. Don't be afraid to try this one on your children if they enjoy quality stories that may seem challenging. You may be surprised. I agree that it is nice to hand the children a book that you don't have to worry about objectionable content coming up.

INTERESTING, WHOLESOME STORIES! May 31, 2012
Reviewer: Mom in OK  
My children have really enjoyed reading this book full of true-to-life stories. It is nice to find books that I don't have to preread before they can enjoy them. Nothing objectionable!

Wholesome reading October 19, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buckeye, AZ United States  
My daughter really enjoyed Calls to Courage.  It is so nice to find a book for this age that is wholesome and inspiring.  The stories are so interesting, that she would often read one to a sibling just for the enjoyment of it.  Excellent!

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!
