Timberdoodle's review
Many years ago, when our children were beginning readers, we used the Pathway Readers to successfully monitor and encourage an ongoing reading program.

Designed to be used in Amish classrooms, these basal readers are solidly wholesome, with none of the fantasy that is commonplace in both Christian and secular readers. If you are weary of the brashness that is evident in readers with contemporary story lines, you'll find these a refreshing alternative.

Here the children are expected to obey their parents, respect their teachers, ask forgiveness when they do wrong, and humbly submit to the discipline of those in authority! Yet they still enjoy life!!

Because the Amish don't use electricity, you won't find stories dealing with the latest in films, computers, or TVs. Instead, the stories are centered around farm life, with horse auctions, harvests, and LARGE families. We have compared these books to several home school basal readers and have found that they are more challenging in the lower grades and infinitely more interesting. With simple typesetting and a few black-and-white sketches, these hardback books are not splashy, but are lovely in their simplicity.

Another outstanding component of Timberdoodle's 2017 First-Grade Curriculum Kit!

    I like everything about this book. Rachel is a funny girl. She is my favorite character out of this book. I did not think I would like it, but I do. I love this book.

    We LOVE these books! June 8, 2016
    Reviewer: Lisa Perez from San Antonio, TX United States  
    My daughter has hated reading for the last couple of months. We did the reading lesson, and she loved it at first. Then she started dreading it, and finally at lesson 14 we quit. I decided to try these, and she LOVES them. They start really easy with just a couple of words repeating the same words and adding a couple new ones ever section. My daughter begs me to listen to her read. She waits till her dad comes home to show off her new reading skills. She even asked me to take a video so grandma could see. When I tell her that it's time to practice reading, she says, "Good, I was going to ask you to read with me for fun anyway." These are improving her skills and helping her to really LOVE reading.

    Great for new independent readers! May 29, 2014
    Reviewer: Kristen S.  
    My son loves to read these! He is in Kindergarten and I love that he can curl up on the couch and read these on his own. My favourite thing about these readers is that they come with life lessons from a Christian perspective.
