My son and daughter are 6th graders at 10 & almost 12 years old. They just finished the Life of Fred Math Elementary series because I wanted them to review before going into the 4-8 grade Math books. My son has TS. He has trouble staying focused, and I believe he might have some other issues with reading. I would like him to start with your LA books. I am not sure where we should begin, especially with him.

Asked by a Homeschooler on September 23rd, 2016 (Edited)

You probably want to get the Language Arts series: If Australia (the first book) is too tough, then you can come back to it in a few months.

  • My kids LOVE these!
    Aug 01, 2016

    My reluctant reader LOVES these books (we have all 3 sets) and has read them again and again. I find them silly, but if it gets him reading, then they are good by me! Thanks LOF!

  • Love these!!
    Mar 23, 2016

    My daughter listens in while we do Life of Fred math with her older siblings just to hear the goofy stories. She was so excited that she had LOF books of her own! The stories are just as silly and the kids have no idea that they are learning! Love LOF!

  • Great books!

    We love Life of Fred books. I got these for my 4 year old son to learn to read. Honestly they have not helped him learn to read, but they keep his attention and teach him a lot of things. Some things are very basic and some things I even learned from the book!

    Life of Fred books are a favorite in our home. Always excited when new books come out. Even though our son is past the age level for these books, he still wanted to add them to his collection.

About the Seller
781 Reviews

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!
