How Living Books Teach

School doesn’t have to feel like drudgery! Instead of stressful tests or solo educational screentime, create an enjoyable and relational homeschool experience by immersing your family in outstanding books. Great literature gives context to the history and science you are teaching, forging an emotional connection with the material—something textbooks and software fail to provide. Kids understand more thoroughly and retain more easily when lessons are conveyed through biographies, historical fiction, and classic literature. Narratives are delightful! Come learn from Sarita Holzmann how living books can form the centerpiece of a truly pleasurable homeschool lifestyle that solidly equips your children to think critically, feel empathy, and achieve academically.
