Out of the many comprehension workbooks I have used and reviewed, this series is my personal favorite. It contains great variety in subject matter and excellent thinking questions. Before reading each of the 31 reading selections per book, a short introduction gives a little background information and states the reading skill to be emphasized. Selections include pieces on general topics, mathematics, philosophy, literature, science, social studies, logic and thinking, language, and the arts. Because this is a secular program, you may choose to preview some of the reading selections, particularly in the upper grades. Following the selections are questions which require students to find the main idea, identify sequence, draw conclusions, make assumptions, match vocabulary words to meanings, and identify and interpret facts. Although this series is my favorite, our children are not as certain, since these books really made them think. Please note that there are no answers included in the workbooks. All answers are provided in the small Teacher Keys, available for each workbook as a separate but inexpensive purchase.

I ordered this because Abeka's theology was quite odd. Hoping a secular resource will be better.

Book 2: Chapter 1 is titled The First Living Being, can you tell me from what worldview this is done? (Evolution, old earth, young earth, or I am not understanding the title?) Thank you.

BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry that I can't recall specifically what that chapter was about, but the articles in these sets are not strictly Christian or secular. You will find a variety from many different views including mythology. I used this as a time to help my child better understand our beliefs as well as others.

Excellent school books!
We have been using the Reading Comprehension books for several years now and like them better than any other Reading Comp books we've ever used. They are interesting stories, appeal to both boys and girls and have straightforward, easy to answer questions at the end.

Great resource for comprehension practice
I really like these books. I am a private tutor, and these are some of my favorite books to practice reading comprehension. The selections are varied and interesting. The questions start at lower levels and move on to involve higher level thinking. There are great suggestions for related writing activites.
