Are Living Books as Effective as Textbooks?

Very often, when I mention to someone that we prefer real books to textbooks, I’m asked this question:

BUT ARE THEY AS EFFECTIVE AS TEXTBOOKS?

First, let me point out that the effectiveness of textbooks is debatable, especially when it comes to history and science, yet they’re still placed upon a very unjustified pedestal.

So my answer to that question is YES, ABSOLUTELY. In fact, even more so. Today’s video, which miraculously has enabled comments (until YouTube notices), explains WHY.

I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.
