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 Third-Grade Curriculum Kit!

    Delightfully Written November 8, 2013
    Reviewer: Kimberlee  
    I love hearing my son read these to me. The stories are delightfully written. My son is typically resistant to reading assignments, but once he sits down to read these stories, he finds himself laughing and enjoying himself. I appreciate the wholesome quality of the content, and the fact that it gives him an appreciation for a by-gone era.

    Pathway Readers Third Grade Set October 25, 2011
    Reviewer: Melissa Turner from Pleasant Grove, UT United States  
    I was trying to find a reader that my 8 year old boy would enjoy.  After reading a lot of reviews I decided to give the Pathway Readers a try.  He loves them!  The books are well within his grade level.   I love how the books talk about different values.  It's started a lot of great conversations with us!

    Wonderful Books to Grow, Encourage, & Inspire! September 20, 2011
    Reviewer: Celena J. from US  
    Another home schooling family recommended these books to us & I'm so glad they did!  I like that they're simple and love the fact that the children in the books seem like real children who learn and grow and make mistakes.  These books have many of the same characters as the 2nd grade reader "Busy Times" with some new friends included.  They also include a great selection of poetry.

    Pathway Readers Third Grade Set November 8, 2010
    Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    When we got the Pathway Readers Third Grade Set in the mail, my daughter began to cheer!  How many reading books elicit that type of response?  Not many, but Pathway is one of the best set of readers!  We love that the stories are so wholesome and edifying.  The characters are believable and realistic.  They are not perfect so our children can identify with their struggles, but they learn a lesson.  These books are a great role model for my children, and they also help develop a love for reading!
