    Don't Skip the Intermediate Series
    May 26, 2017

    I was wondering if I could skip Kidneys, Liver and Mineshaft. The answers from two retailers were the opposite. I e-mailed the author and he said don't skip them even if your kid is older. The books cover info that you don't want to miss.

    Math fun for those who'd rather be reading
    May 04, 2017

    My daughters think Fred is so funny and are working through the lessons without complaint. They'd rather be reading, so math lessons with a lot of story to them hold their interest. We are using these books as a supplement to their homeschool math curriculum.

    Making Math Fun

    My son used to complain all through his math lessons. Now he gets excited to tell me how Fred had explained the same concept or how cool it is that a certain math principle always works. We love Life of Fred!

    This book comes after Jelly Beans. My daughter begged me to get more Fred books 3 books ago because she didn't want to run out. We love Life of Fred.
