Another plus is that cursive is introduced early, starting with words which are easily recognizable by a child who is familiar with print letters and just being introduced to cursive. The level is just high enough to present a challenge, but not too high to cause discouragement.
Times were different when the books were first written. Sentences like "Tom is too fat to run fast" and, after falling on the ice, one particular lad "is a brave boy, and will not cry" invite discussion on a more Christ-like way to approach some aspects of life. I started to lower the rating a star because of this, but it's actually a good opportunity.
We are a secular family, so we do sometimes skip over stories and poems with a religious emphasis, but some of them we do read and discuss the story/poem together. I think whether you are Christian, secular, or any religion, this is a wonderful series to read together.
The only fault I could give this series is that the printing on some pages is a bit faint and faded in certain areas, but this is still a solid 5-star set. I also really like that it comes in a nice box to keep everything neat and tidy and keep it from getting ruined.
I dearly love this set and am so glad it is in my home to enjoy.
Another reviewer mentioned that the set only contained up to the fourth reader, but the complete set does contain seven volumes, from the primer through the sixth reader. It might be worth contacting the seller to verify that if buying used.
I'm so glad we found these. Highly recommended!
