    We loved Life of Fred until Fractions. My kids are hating it. Moving on to yet another math curriculum.

    My child can't wait to do math each day because of the excitement of discovering Fred and Kingie's misadventures. Mixed in with all the fun and excitement is a good dose of well-structured math lessons along with valuable life lessons. The everyday application of math in Fred's life makes the concepts easily learned and memorable. And I appreciate the Bridge activities which help assess mastery along the way. I highly recommend LoF!

    We've been using LoF for a few years now. My oldest son has always struggled with fractions, this book has been the one thing that has helped him understand. We LOVE Fred!

    We are new to homeschooling this year, and I chose LOF: Fractions for my 10 yo son going into 5th grade. He has always been far above grade level, but very unmotivated at school. He immediately took to Fred & is eager to complete this volume & move on to the next. So far he reads & works the problems independently, & he presents his work to me for the bridges orally. (I read it too, & as a retired fifth grade teacher I think it's brilliant!) We also do Khan, just for fun, which my son likes a lot too, since it gives him a lot of control. He knows if he's having trouble with a concept in Fred he can watch a tutorial on Khan. I'm a last resort. He loves that, as do I. We are looking forward to a great year with Fred & Sal!

    I ordered this book for my 10 year old son, when the book arrived, my 7 year old started to read the book and cannot put it down. He really enjoyed the book, that we bought the fourth book of the life of fred - dogs. Both the boys enjoyed the book very much. The only problem is the shipping is a little bit slow, it took about a week for the book to arrive, the boy is counting the days.
