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.

    Love these simple family stories.

    Pathway Readers Third Grade Set

    My child LOVED these books. So much so, that by the end of the first month of school she had finished reading both of them. We were so disheartened when the stories were over. We looked forward to them. We enjoyed the moral lessons taught in such age-appropriate fashion. OUTSTANDING!!! Can't say enough good about them!!!

    My daughter enjoys reading the stories in the Pathway Readers. That's enough for me!

    My daughter loves them but I wish they included the workbook. My daughter needs to work on her listening and reading comprehension. I had to order it separately.

    We have New Friends and More New Friends. Our kids (8 and 10) just love them. They read them over and over again. Plan on buying the rest of them.
