    Life of Fred ROCKS!

    The Life of Fred series has made learning math engaging and fun for my kids - they both jump right into math first thing each morning. Now that we're getting into these higher levels, we're all interested and excited to see what happens next with Fred and Kingie and their adventures at KITTENS U!

    Haven't dug into yet because we are not there yet. I'm buying ahead so we can keep on rolling. I flipped through and liked what I saw. When we get into I will update my review. Life of Fred has made doing math a more pleasant experience for my son.

    This review is for Life of Fred Pre-Algebra Series
    My son was behind in math, not because he couldn't do it but because he was BORED. We decided to change our math curriculum to Life of Fred, and I'm so glad we did! He loves Life of Fred and has more than caught up in the past year. He finished the first pre-algebra book in less than 2 weeks, of his own motivation, and has learned some basic physics principles that I had never learned as someone with a masters degree. He enjoys doing math now.

    My daughter loves these books and so do I. We're both learning together and it's fun. The style of writing is engaging and I wish all school books were like this!
