What people are saying about the books:
“I was not so sure on these books. I heard a lot of good reviews but after we got them, just skimming through I wasn’t sure my 9-year-old daughter would like them. I was WRONG! She really likes them! They move at a pace she likes and being one continuous story about Fred’s life keeps her interested and entertained. We will be back for more soon. She just finished Kidneys and is now on Liver.” -Melisa W.
“We’ve gone through many math programs since I began homeschooling, but the passion never returned. In fact, my son had grown to hate it. Math had become something we both dreaded. I ordered this set, and all that has changed!! By using these books, we have identified what concepts he was never taught, or just didn’t grasp. He told us that he wished he could just start from the beginning with the Life of Fred. My husband and I are expecting that shipment to arrive this week, and will be ordering Fractions, Decimals, and Pre-Algebra next!” -Janet C.
