I love that it doesn't feel like I'm learning when I read Fred books. Sometimes, I'll force myself to read things because I really want the knowledge, but it feels like work, but the Fred books feel like entertainment. The "Financial Choices" books is great for our whole family. I enjoy them and so do the kids, and we learn so many useful concepts along the way. This book is a great way to introduce kids to very practical and necessary financial concepts without it being tedious. I'd recommend it to anyone!

Family reading with financial learning, too!

Our family has enjoyed using the Life of Fred series of math books for family reading time. Everyone enjoys the stories, so we decided to add Financial Choices to our library. It is a bit more advanced, so more appropriate for middle school and above, but even the younger ones still enjoyed the stories. Great way to make learning financial topics more fun.

High school students here are required to have a financial literacy course and this is perfect. It explains everything in an easy to understand manner and the kids enjoy it. I have recommended this book to several moms in my homeschool group.

My teens enjoyed this as their Finance credit! It was such a fun way to cover this subject!
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!
