  Good question, Christie. Whether or not nature study and reading living science books are enough depends on what your goals are for your kids, how in-depth the living books are, how much of the scientific field you cover with the books, how knowledgeable you are in the sciences, and how interested your kids are in science.   But honestly, I had no clue where to start.
