    My daughter struggles with reading so when I came across this, I thought it would be perfect to help with reading and math. She loves it! This book is the perfect combination of silly, entertaining, and educational. She does her math without any complaining or hesitation. That has never happened before! Highly recommend to anyone looking to add a little fun to their math curriculum.

    I am catching my 7th grader up on math skills and although this book is for the elementary grades it is intriguing enough for him to not feel demeaned by using it. He was able to go through the book rather quickly (in two weeks), and I am looking forward to him breezing through the others until he gets to his grade level.

    The best part of the day for my kids. We curl together on the couch and read and laugh and can't get enough of these hilarious; yet stimulating books! We bought all of them- and it was worth every cent!

    What a great way to learn!

    A very enjoyable way to pick up math for the kid, and entertaining even for the adult supervisor!
