Psychologists emphasise that the importance of textbooks in the development of a child is because using textbooks is one of the first independent intellectual activities undertaken by a child. The role of the textbook is not only to create and form the culture of thinking, but also the culture of using books and other sources of information. The textbook helps to enlarge knowledge, as well as in the search for new information and experience, the application of everything that is learned to everyday life, and the realisation of independent products (Plut, 2000).
