This book, used in conjunction with the "Days Go By and More Days Go By Flash Cards" will result in a confident and eager reader! The Pathway Reader Series was designed by an Amish farming community for use in their educational programs. These basal readers are refreshingly wholesome. In these books children are expected to obey their parents, respect their teachers, ask forgiveness when they do what is wrong, and humbly submit to the discipline of those in authority! Because the Amish don't use electricity, you won't find stories dealing with the latest in videos, computers or TVs. Instead the stories are centered around large families living on the farm and their interaction with each other, their animals and their neighbors. With simple typesetting and a few black-and-white sketches, these hardback books are lovely in their simplicity.
