My favorite Independent Readers - Pathway Readers
Hey friends! Let's talk about readers today. It can be such a challenge to find great reading material for our kids. I can't be the only one who struggled to find something that fits our family. So many things to consider - budget, content, engagement, ease of use, etc.
Over the course of our homeschool journey thus far we have used many different independent reader options. We have used All about Reading, Sonlight's booklists, Usborne readers, McGuffey's readers, and more. These all had their pros and cons and all could be good options for families, but none quite checked all of our boxes.
So, what are my favorite readers?
That is easy, Pathway Readers from Pathway Publishers.
Pathway readers are incredibly affordable. You can shop around a bit for the best deal, but generally you will find them for about $6- $7 a book. There are also workbooks that can be purchased for a couple dollars each, but we choose to just use the readers on their own.
The series has readers available for grades 1-8. I've purchased the readers for grades 1-4 so those are the ones I will be focusing on in this post.
