I love reading this series to my grandson (age 6)! We both laugh and learn. The stories are funny, and they always teach so much more than math. I feel like reading the whole series for my self because I'm learning too. We try to remember some of the things that are mentioned, like Marvin Stone ... Penny K - Super-hero

Thought it would be a good purchase, but found my brother-in law had it for his homeschool. I wasn't really impressed. I'm sure some will find it great but It's doubtful I'll be using it for my son. Tristan K - Parent, Super-hero

    We Love Fred and Kingie

    I love reading this series to my grandson (age 6)! We both laugh and learn. The stories are funny, and they always teach so much more than math. I feel like reading the whole series for my self because I'm learning too. We try to remember some of the things that are mentioned, like Marvin Stone invented the straw in 1888, just because it is fun to remember. We also learned about the constellation Orion, and so much more. I've always enjoy math, but these books make learning everything more fun. I highly recommend these !

    My child loved it!
    Yes, I would recommend this product.

    Not too bad

    Fun book to get the math wheels turning

    My daughter has enjoyed reading this so much. I don't think it will work so well as a curriculum by itself, as was suggested to me, but it will make a great addition to one.
