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!

Rare Wholesome Reader for this age! October 19, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Buckeye, AZ United States  
My girls enjoyed Open Windows so much.  It made it so it doesn't feel like a reading lesson, but reinforces the principles we are working to instill.  Open Windows is a joy to read and edifies my children's character while strengthening their reading skills.

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!
