Format: Hardcover
Maybe it's just me. I found the Seton Press Readers to be so charming and wholesome that it was like going back in time.

After just a few pages, my children were utterly enthralled with the charming illustrations -- original from the 1960s version -- and the engaging stories. I was glad that they were reading stories which incorporated the Catholic traditions in a very natural, gentle way. With stories featuring gentle, smiling nuns, helpful, friendly priests, as well as devout, loving families and courageous, inspiring saints, these books were so uplifting that my kids almost forgot that they "had" to read them. They wanted to read them!

In a world where we feel like we have to apologize for the "differentness" that makes us Catholic, I found these books renewed my sense of gratitude for the gift of our Holy Church. Oh, and my kids really learned to love reading while we were at it, so that's good, too.

The Faith and Freedom readers are so wonderful. I echo the previous reviewer's comments. We use them in our family, and revisit them often. I taught my daughter to read using these books. The frequent word use repetition, and gentle increase with more difficult words, makes this series so helpful for reading fluency. One cannot easily find this quality in today's literature for children. I am a former public school teacher and I have a Master of Education degree. I highly recommend them.
