    Fred is a hit!
    Aug 22, 2017

    I heard about these books from multiple sources, online and in person, and after reading waaaaay too many reviews, decided to get them for our 6yr old. She /loves/ them. She reads them to us with such expression because they're silly and quirky and she loves pointing out what's odd about each situation.
    I'm excited to get the second set for her and learn more about Fred! More than just reading comprehension comes out in these books. I've noticed a lot of people commenting on their "DIY" feel, and yes they certainly are. However, if you have a very creative munchkin who is constantly drawing, designing and crafting, I think these books really reach them because it's so like what they do themselves. They're incredibly relatable for the intended age group.
    While they, of course, won't meet each person's expectations and/or needs, I wanted to share how much we've enjoyed them and I hope you do too, if you try them out!

    Underwhelmed... plus, be advised, no returns/refunds allowed...

    This book set was not quite as advertised. I expected more of an educational, self-correcting aspect to the book, as far as aiding in reading instruction. Also, as previously mentioned, it definitely has a DIY look to it. This is important to note, as there are no photos of the inside of the books for you to see. My low star rating also has to do with the customer service. I opted to return this set, as it did not meet my needs and I did not feel it was quite as advertised. Be aware, despite indicating a return policy online and on the purchase order, they will not actually accept returns. For not having the option to preview inside the books before purchasing, the returns should not be so difficult. I requested a return/refund 9 days ago and I am still waiting for Oceana to "contact her manager regarding my request"... ;(

    Wow... Terrific for my 5 year old

    I heard about these books from a homeschooling blog, and ordered them up. My son LOVES them... We pretend I'm the stuffed animal, and he's Fred... such a hoot. And because there are few words, he has to interpret from the pictures...great teaching tool...and these will be terrific books for him to read as he JUST started reading books himself... I hope there are more in the series

    Quirky, but a blast to read

    If you can overcome the DIY production quality, then you'll see the charm these books bring to beginning readers. There's a little bit of math, a little bit of geography, and a whole lot of bizarre. My 5 year old son loves it though and as a parent, I find the stories pretty charming. The books are pretty sturdy also, so they seem like they'll last a while.

    My son is a late reader. He is a creative,humorous kid. He also has a short attention span....therefore the books I used with his older brothers didn't work for him. This is part of why I now homeschool -the ability to adapt to each kid and their personality. My son finds these extremely funny. He reads these without anyone asking him. Not your typical reading books, but they are working for us.
