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 Second-Grade Curriculum Kit!

    Great Lessons October 28, 2014
    Reviewer: Liz M  
    My 7 year old read these over and over. I tried to get her to slow down so that we could discuss more along the way, but she kept begging to keep going so I let her just read away. We'd talk about some of her favorite parts and I loved all of the positive lessons from good, wholesome characters. I wasn't worried (like I am with other chapter books) about whether the content was appropriate or not, I knew these were readers I could trust.

    Reviewer: Heather S.  
    My daughter and I love these books. We loved the first and couldn't wait to purchase this set. These books are by far the best books for beginning readers.

    Just the Right Size April 23, 2014
    Reviewer: Maria  
    My children love these books. (Have used Gr. 1 and 3 and have recently purchased Gr. 2) They are just the right size to hold and my son has commented that he likes how they feel. Because they are hardback I have easily used them down the line and they are still in good condition. Though the stories are mainly centered on Amish farm life (at least in the books we have) my children just think the stories are from a long time ago and love them.

    Simply Dazzling! February 26, 2014
    Reviewer: Lachelle B.  
    I initially thought that these books would be a redundant addition to the host of other reading books we previously purchased from another curriculum supplier. I am delighted to tell you that I WAS WRONG! My 7-year-old daughter has been struggling with reading confidence and tore through 52 pages of the first book in one sitting! I was suspicious that these would fade in comparison to our shelf of readers. These are a fantastic addition to our reading program. We are very encouraged in our journey of homeschooling. --Harrisburg Mother of 4
