We tried out these books recently and have fallen in love with them. Our oldest will be 6 soon and was struggling with confidence in her reading abilities. She honestly just didn't even want to try. These books helped coax her back into the wonderful world of reading by taking her mind off of the task at hand. They're silly and fun while also being educational. Love Life of Fred!

Wonderful Introduction to Reading
May 17, 2016
This beginner's series is a hit with my 4 year old. With his older siblings having the LOF math books, he wanted some of his own so I ordered this set for him. He is absolutely in love with it and it has helped him to identify some common words. These are his go to books when asked to read.

My youngest has seen me use Fred books with her older brother, and was ecstatic to get some right for her. This series was simple enough for her to fly through, building up her reading confidence, so that she was able to attack her schoolwork with zest.

I got these books for my 4 year old to learn to read. He can read some of the words, but many he cannot. He enjoys the simple photos and crazy adventures of Fred. It's a great introduction to LOF, as we will start on Apples soon.

Enjoyable to listen to as well as to read

So many early readers are rather dull for both reader and listener. Life of Fred makes it enjoyable for all involved. We adore the math series, and were pleased to see the "fun" of Life of Fred continued in this series as well.
The Life of Fred contains fun stories about a child prodigy math genius your students can follow along as he gives real-world examples of everything from math to language arts. In the Life of Fred Elementary Math Series, your students will learn everything from telling time, division, beginning algebra, and more!
You can purchase one book at a time or the entire set at a discounted price! Order more as their skills progress such as the Life of Fred Intermediate Series that incorporate biology, physics, and economics using pre-algebra formulas.
The stories carry on through the exercises, and many of the books have a series of quizzes that bridge them to the next chapter. Some books have all the problem solutions in them, while others have separate answer keys or companions.
Written by Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt, these affordable books were designed to keep your students engaged in math while also following along a storyline. Perfect for independent study, each unit teaches concepts that can be applied using real-world examples. Find out more by reading this blog post!
