Rod and Staff Reading: Grades 1 - 4

Bible Nurture and Reader Series

I want to introduce you to the most unique Reading Program I know. You can find many others that will teach your child to read, but Rod and Staff's "Bible Nurture and Readers Series" (Grades 1-4) is unique in that it imparts Bible knowledge in the teaching process, thus fulfilling God's command (Eph. 6:4). Your child will be reading biblical truth instead of "fun stuff." It is important that every child learn to read, but more important that he develop a desire for profitable reading rather than just entertainment. In this course the child is reading to learn, not just learning to read. Every child needs to develop an appetite for serious reading at an early age. "Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child" (Prov. 22:15), and we certainly do not want to encourage it with frivolous reading material. Many curriculums prioritize the fun approach and develop that mentality in their students. But most of us, by now, are quite aware that life is not fun. We can have peace and joy in the Lord and find satisfaction in our labor, but life is serious and consequential. We need to prepare our children to face the realities of living a serious and useful life. The biblical content of the reading material is what sets this program apart from the rest.

Furthermore, the "Bible Nurture and Readers Series" is academically sound. Having personally used it to teach, I can tell you that it works.

We love the BNRS of R&S reading. I have used 1-3 grade and will continue to do so for years to come. I love it's approach to teaching children to read. My son learned to read with this curriculum and is now in the 3rd grade readers. It is very thorough and he loves the stories. I love how there isn't a ton of pictures to distract the children and/or help them guess what the story is. They have to read it and comprehend to find out. Also, I like how they are so Biblically grounded with no nonsense fairy tales and fantasy. The first word the children learn to read is "God"; shouldn't that be the first word our children ever learn?

We are using your First Grade Series. I had the same books when I was in first grade. I was so happy I could get them for my children. They are the best there is. They so glorify our Savior. No one has a better series. They teach so many values and it is so good for the children to see it and read it from a schoolbook. Thank you for your faithfulness in an age where people have lost values. We thank the Lord for your care in printing such wonderful curriculum.

I am using your 1st grade reading and I love, love, love it. I love how God-centered it is. I love how it talks about work for everyone in the family and children helping their parents. This is what we are trying to teach to our kids, so I love it being integrated into their schoolwork too!
