My children LOVE LOF, and this book is no different! My oldest son, who is NOT normally a lover of reading, has read this through once already, and will read it again. Very practical information imparted in a VERY fun way!

A great way to learn how to manage your finances!

I have read through this book and found it full of great information for all ages. As always, the stories are interesting, humorous and make learning fun. The book opens with Fred figuring out his expenses and then goes on to cover wants vs. needs, compounding interest, investments and many other important topics for those desiring to learn how to be a good steward of their finances and to know how investments work.

A must read for everyone!
Mar 02, 2016
We love LOF books and Financial Choices is one of the best! I read it and learned SO MUCH that I did not already know. I think it should be a must read for high school kids and adults too! Dr. Schmidt's financial advice aligns closely to how our family handles finances and this book is a great way to teach our kids what we want them to know. And if it comes from Fred, my kids will be more apt to take his advice than if it comes from a parent!
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!
