    I'm so excited about this. Lots of research sent me to this program and it's so different than anything else. I wish I had this as a child. I have no doubt I will learn a few things too.

    My daughter was so excited about her new math book, she wanted to start the day it arrived at our home...and completed 3 chapters in one go. She enjoys the stories and isn't bogged down by an unnecessarily large number of problems to complete before moving on to the next concept. We love it!

    A FAVORITE at our house!

    I was nervous at first to READ math aloud but I found that it really does work! Its so exciting to see how this curriculum displays the practical side of math in the real world but does it in a funny, engaging way. My boys laugh and learn all at the same time. I highly recommend this. We add Mathematical Reasoning to this and its a well rounded math program.
