    I am using it to help bring more confidence to my granddaughter . She loves to read and the combination of reading and math seems a perfect match so far.

    Using these for my child who lost all confidence in math in public school. Fred is fun and engaging but teaches as you go. Love it!

    My kids love Fred. For us, this series is perfect during the summer. It gives them something to read and Math review all at the same time. I've had my son ask if he can do extra lessons!

    Our granddaughter was really struggling with math but loved to read. We started on book A . She loves them!! Her math skills have improved greatly. She still does a regular math book but only about 1/2 or 1/3 of the problems so that I´m sure she understands the work. She went through book K twice because she didn´t get many of the questions right the first time through. She didn´t mind doing the book over and the second time through she needed very little help. She asked us to buy the next set of books. She is 9 years old. I wish I knew about these books when I was teaching my chilren.

    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.
