    Love this series

    My son hated math but now he begs for us to read a chapter of Life of Fred,. He's learning a lot and his comprehension skills have increased phenomenally.

    My daughter LOVES Life of Fred

    My daughter is 9 and she loves these books. She begs to read them. We take turns reading the "chapters" to each other. They are witty, and not only teach math, but other skills like vocabulary definitions, idioms, and other random facts like library alphabetizing. And we are only to chapter five! I am currently using them in addition to public school. We read them "for fun" in the evenings.

    Easy way to teach a child math. We are not quite into the intermediate, my children are liking the elementary series. We couldn't pass up on a sale deal.

    Life of Fred is a favorite PRESENT at our home
    Jun 08, 2016

    My son began the series at 5. Now at 6, he begs to read them every night. When I surprised him with Kidneys as a late birthday present, his eyes lit up and his face had a huge smile. He loves the character of Fred and he loves the fact that each math concept is introduced at a pace that keeps it challenging and never boring. He also loves reading the books to himself and as a beginner reader, he has spent HOURS reading and re-reading them. Finally, I love the sturdy covers and binding. My son heavily uses these books, but I know they will last for his younger siblings. Great value! We'll probably buy every volume in the series one day!
