I just recently learned what a “Living Book” was and I am so glad I did. I will pull the quote straight from simplycharlottemason.com/faq/livingbook/ explaining what it is because I am not well educated enough about the topic to give you a full rundown of what they are:
“Living books are usually written by one person who has a passion for the subject and writes in conversational or narrative style. The books pull you into the subject and involve your emotions, so it’s easy to remember the events and facts. Living books make the subject “come alive.” They can be contrasted to dry writing, like what is found in most encyclopedias or textbooks, which basically lists informational facts in summary form. You might be surprised to find that living books are available for most school subjects — even math, geography, and science!”
I utilized the book finder on her website and was able to restock our bookshelves with living books. I will link them below!
