Rated 4 out of 5 by Laurel Comprehensive reading program but difficult manual
I purchased this curriculum as my daughter struggles with enjoying reading and hence comprehension. We have had a hard time implementing this into our school day as the manual is very taxing and overloaded with information. While the information is meant to be helpful, I find it very overwhelming and difficult to sort through. I also find the lesson as written would take far more time that we could allow per day. I also do not like that the answers in the teacher's manual are not written clearly enough so that I would not have to also read the reading selection. Teaching multiple children, I do not have time to read the selection as well. I have found the program to be very thorough and cover many skills. I have simply had to minimize the lesson to keep our day on track and my daughter from resenting her reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissPerfect All BJUP Reading is absolutely excellent!!!
Reading 4 is just as good as the rest of BJUP's Reading curriculum. It enhances the phonics the students have already learned, as well as introducing newer, bigger words. The stories are challenging and fun to read. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYMommy Love the stories
For children who like to read and even those who don't, there are great stories & a variety of literature. The Reader & Workbook are beautifully illustrated, so children are drawn into it. I am happy with the level of learning, esp. compared with public schooled friends. Even though it's designed for Christian Schools (I am just a homeschooler) since I have 3 children, I justified that purchase by dividing by 3 and buying new Worktexts only for the other 2 children. It took a while for me to adjust to the teacher's guide (as it's very thorough-and geared toward classroom use) but I tailored it to my own style. For my two younger girls, I had the older read the story aloud and they both could answer discussion questions.

This book is a comprehensive reading workbook. I reinforces reading and language skills and adds some creative writing, too. It is excellent

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momoffour My son actually does it on his own.
It is wonderful for the grade level and is printed and organized in a way that my 4th grader can maneuver through it with little to no assistance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Homeschooler2 Student text is paper back
This is my third fourth year using BJU reading and I love the how easy it is to use and my kids and I love the stories too! In the years past the readers have always been hard covers and are very durable. This time the student text is paper back. I am concerned how it is going to hold up over time. I was not aware of the change when I ordered so I wanted to let others know about it. Just in case you are expecting it to be a hard cover as it has been in the past.
