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 2016 First-Grade Curriculum Kit!

    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.

    These boos are great! April 25, 2014
    Reviewer: Sarah A.  
    My daughter loves these books. She is 5 and they are a good fit-there are some words that she needs help with at times. The stories are engaging for her. I recommend these.

    Love love love these books! March 29, 2014
    Reviewer: Courtney Nagy  
    My reluctant reader, age 7, really enjoys these books... And so do I! The stories are perfect for a beginning reader without all of the nonsense or repetitive "phonics-y" type vocabulary that my son finds boring. I love how the characters in these books seem like real children- sometimes they argue, or don't want to do what their parents ask, but it always works out in the end... And that appealed to my son as well. Highly recommended!!
