We love Life of Fred!
My kids love the Life of Fred books. My son who is 6 asks that we do this first to start our day. I am so impressed with the way it’s written and how much my children have taken to this style of teaching. Their curiosity increases with each chapter they read. We will be ordering Life of Fred again and again!

Awesome method for teaching math
My 2e son(8yo) loves Life of Fred. He briefly went to a school that was all math worksheets and he said " I was starting to think I didn't love math anymore!" We are back to homeschooling and we love Life of Fred! Teaches the basics while keeping the child curious about advanced math theories and ideas. A very unique approach that keeps math fresh and interesting. Wish I had learned math this way.

Unlike any other math book in the best way!
My daughter (7) and I are about 3/4 through The Life of Fred: Edgewood. It took a few chapters for us to warm up to it. Now I look forward to what we are going to learn in a clever way that pertains to everyday life. It is mostly math but surprisingly other subjects (a fun diversion and bonus) - be it geography or spelling or grammar, etc). The big difference in learning is that it engages the student to think about it! Higher math concepts are introduced and discussed and WELL RECEIVED! For example in Edgewood one of the problems (although it's called your turn to play) is whether you can have more than two right angles in a trapezoid. I'm not sure how she grasped the concept so quickly but as I pondered it, my daughter was sure. She wrote down "NO." Also the concept of variables. My daughter found it a fun challenge and wanted me to make more problems for her! There aren't many problems per chapter nor practice. What there is instead, is time to let their minds think about the concepts throughout the story. It's a low pressure, yet highly cerebral experience. The individual books only take about a month to complete yet they are packed with nuggets of fascinating stuff. I suggest you try one for yourself.

I am a combination of Robinson, Classical and Unschooling for my home school program for my three children. It made sense to use the Life of Fred math books because the rest of the home school curriculum I am using is very much literature based.
