    My son hated math and was having a hard time retaining what he learned. I've heard such great things about Life of Fred I decided to give it a shot. I'm hoping to restore his joy of learning through these books.

    I own a homeschool curriculum rental business, Yellow House Book Rental. Life of Fred is my best selling product. Although LOF was not around when my children were being homeschooled, I think they would have loved it!
