    We ordered Life of Fred F-M for our daughter because we were looking for something that will hold her interest for learning math. When I first looked at the examples online I almost didn't go through with the order. Since they've been here, I've read several of the books and honestly, I think this is REALLY going to work for my daughter! The stories are interesting (full of all sorts of interesting facts) and give the reader a reason to want to solve the problems.
