Looking for a reading program that...

teaches morals without overt Christian doctrine or Bible stories
is designed to build reading skills and vocabulary
is economical
was designed for all student ability levels
has easy-to-use teacher guides/answer keys
requires no parent preparation time
is complete and thorough
encourages independent learning

The Reading Development Series does all this and more!

A reading series that has proved itself through many years in hundreds of classrooms is available again. The Reading Development Series was originally published in the mid 1900s. This revised edition is largely based on the original but with some improvements in content. Of special interest to the students are the various settings of people and animals from all over the world. These carefully graded stories teach Christian morals without overt Christian doctrine or Bible stories.

OPTIONAL: An extensive teacher's manual is available to guide you through the two workbooks per level, one of which concentrates on vocabulary. The teacher manual is recommended particularly for use in schools. In the home school setting use it in a unit study fashion for expanding on the history, geography, science and other information pertinent to the various stories but not covered in depth within the stories nor in the answer keys. Contact us for details.

Looking for a fantastic Vocabulary Development program but do not want a reading comprehension program?
Again, we have you covered. The Vocabulary element of the series can be used independently. The level of a person's vocabulary is directly proportional to the level of success one will realize in life and any profession of choice which is benefited from communication skills! Ultimately, the vocabulary determines the salary.
