I will just say that I'm not thrilled with Apologia's high school science books. But the other day I got about 90 seconds to look at one of the elementary books and... well it was such a quick look, but I liked it more than I expected! Granted, I had prejudged it negatively, so maybe it's because I had low expectations when I saw it that I thought it looked promising. But I am very curious to hear others' impressions. Do you find it twaddlish? Is it meaningful? Do your children truly connect with it?
I wanted to love RSK (hmm.. is that the one? I think that's it), but when I saw it ever so briefly just the other day too, it wasn't what I was hoping for.
And if you have favorable impression of the Apologia books, what would you use if you weren't going to do the whole series? My oldest elementary is finishing up 3rd grade, so I don't know that I'd spend more than 2, possibly 3 years, with anything at that level.
