    My daughter is 8 years old and even though she has already learned most of what is covered, she still enjoyed reading Apples. She asked to read more than one chapter a day so I happily obliged. Fred and Kingie are hilarious characters and their stories are entertaining. The math is introduced in such a natural way that it sensible and fun.

    We have completed the first two lessons in Apples. My 6 year-old was eager for today's lesson. While the lessons seem short, they pack quite a punch. So far, so good!

    My 7 year old does not enjoy math. I've struggled to find the right fit for him and because he loves to read, this has been it! I wouldn't say it is a "curriculum" but it is a good and fun supplement to your math. My son will sit down and want to read several chapters at a time. Highly recommend!
