This giveaway has ended, and the winner is Heather F. who wrote: “My children are 5, 4, 2, and 3 months! We are learning about Native American Indians this summer, as well as MONEY! 🙂 Both older children are passionate about history!”
We are practicing our reading in prep for first grade!
My boys are 8 and 6 and their biggest love this summer is surfing and playing in the ocean. When we skip the beach and stay home they are always in some imaginative world slaying something, reading with me or playing Minecraft. So I would say they are passionate about having the freedom to play and dream.
I have a 5 year old and an 8 year old. As we are in the middle of winter in NZ, my boys want to learn to ski, make candles and play with logic puzzles!
This summer we’re playing in the creek and learning to knit.

My daughter is 3 and loves to be outdoors. We have a big garden, and she has been very excited to learn about different plants and the produce they give us. She’s even pretty good at helping pull weeds! 😉
My daughter is almost 4 (and her youngest sibling is on the way); this summer she’s super interested in flowers. I’m learning along, as her curiosity is boundless (great!). She’s also learning to count, out of the blue it would seem (“two and one is three, mom!”). I’ve already liked both FB pages. Thanks for the international aspect of this (I’m always so disappointed by the “yay school” tones of most books I find at our tiny rural public library; this is great!).

I am currently homeschooling three of five daughters. The two oldest have graduated; they were homeschooled through high school! The three still at home are 12, 11, and 8 years old. We are loving reading aloud this summer. We are involved in a book club that meets every other week at the park. We have 45 minutes of book discussion, then play for another hour. The club involves all ages, so the moms read the books aloud during the week. We actually read Anne of Green Gables in 14 days! Whew!
My kids are 10 and 7… My daughter is reading the Anne of green gables series and my son is interested in killer whales and sharks this summer. Would love to win this for my son…we are having a hard time with learning to read Thanks for doing this giveaway!
My kids are 10, 8, 5 and 3 so they all are passionate about different things. All of then LOVE reading or being read to, then different building or craft projects have kept us busy this summer.
My son turns six in July however he already has an uncanny grasp of all things numbers and “math” related and I’ve had my eye on this series! His passions include all things numbers and computation, geography, tennis, U.S. presidents and fun facts about them and soccer. Oh and he loves reading the Geronomino Stilton and Magic Tree House. series. So fun!

We have a 6-year-old and an 8-year-old. They are both loving extra time to read some great literature this summer! My 8-year-old, especially, loves anything in story form, but he doesn’t enjoy math as much, so I think Life of Fred would be just perfect for him.

We are spending our summer playing all these great games I bought. We just completed our first year homeschooling (K & 2nd).

We love Fred! My twins are 5 and I have a feisty 2-year-old. The big kids have told me that they are going to learn to be brave (= climb the really tall tree next to our building) by the end of summer. The little one is working on learning not to bite people right now. My idea. She doesn’t seem very passionate about the not biting thing, though. I am homeschooling the older two bilingually and we are using the beginning math series alongside the French math program, both to do some math in English and get the vocabulary down in both languages and also because Fred is a much more pleasant and meaningful experience for all of us than the workbooks. I have been wondering about these readers and plan to borrow one from another family and maybe buy one to try out the program next time we visit the US. Learning to read in two languages at once is challenging and I’m always looking for ways to keep it fun for them (and me!).
We love Fred! My kids are 4, 7, and 10. This summer they are loving learning about stars, magic, and Legos and reading Gary Paulson books.

Our kids are 10, 8, and 5. The 10 and 8 year old love to read and build forts outside. Lincoln, the 5 year old does whatever his older sisters want him to. 🙂
My boys are 11 and 13. My oldest has learning disabilities that make math quite a challenge and Life of Fred has been the only resource that helps him really “get it” in math. During the summer it is all about the natural environment for my kids. We camp, hike, fish, and do anything we can outdoors. They love learning about plants and wildlife – finding out what a specific species is called, how it survives, special adaptations, etc. They like to practice their own “survival” skills like building a campfire, and discovering what edibles exist in the wild. They are very protective of the natural world and take pride in taking care of the earth.
My boys, ages 8 & 6, say Fred is their favorite school subject. It’s the only thing the ask to do every day. My girls, ages 4 & 2, listen along and enjoy the stories. This summer we are trying to catch up on our history work, but their favorite thing to do is play Legos.

He has been taking the initiative to read on his own a lot this summer which I love to see because I am an avid reader. He struggled with his reading at the beginning of the school year so it is a joy to see him take so much interest in it.
My kids are 22, 19, 15, 13, 11, 9, 7, 5, 3, and 1. There are alot of interests to list with that many so I’ll just say my 15 year old is into making games and writing.

Hello! I always enjoy your emails. We are planning to begin homeschooling in September. Thanks so much for preparing me for what’s ahead and getting me inspired! My boys are 2 and 6. They are learning to play peacefully together this summer but they’re not so passionate about it. My 6 year-old is passionate about any hands-on science learning we can think of (growing plants, baking, making volcanos) and is an emerging reader so he loves Mo Willems Piggie and Elefant books. My 2 year-old is passionate about learning new sports and recognizing animals. He just discovered tennis when we saw some men at the park playing. He begged me every day after that to buy him a tennis racket! He’s also enjoyed being a spectator at big brother’s soccer camp. We are a bilingual household (Spanish-hubs is from Ecuador) so he’s enjoyed learning animal names in both languages. He asks us both for the names of the animals when he’s not sure but he had them mostly right on our last visit to my aunt’s farm. Have a great summer!
My children are 6, 4, and 2. The oldest wants to try rock climbing, and the middle one wants to learn to swim. We have the first Life of Fred book and love it! I have recommended it to so many of my friends!
My boys are 7, 5, 4, and 2. The big boys are all passionately into reading animal encyclopedias:)
My children are 9 and 10 and this summer we are passionate about a variety of things, including learning to cook, fractions, crocheting, and caring for our rescued stray kitten.
My kids are 8 and 6; the 8 yo loves learning about baseball — he collects old cards and reads up on the old player. He also will read everything he can get his hands on. My 6 yo is passionate about ballet and dances to Swan Lake and the Nutcracker every day.
My oldest son will be five in Dec. and my youngest is 1. My 4 year old is very curious, and a sponge. He has a neurological disorder that causes issues with speech but cognitively he is on target with his peers. Because of his diagnosis of Apraxia, it has slowed his ability to read even though he knows all of his letters by sight. Stringing them together to make words can be difficult and right now I am trying to capitalize on his interest in reading before he gives up. He also loves sorting and categorizing, and counting. Thanks for the opportunity!

What a fun giveaway!
My children are ages 9, 7, 5, 2 and 3 weeks. My 9yo is currently passionate about golf. He’s reading all he can about it and practicing quite a lot. My 7yo is devouring books about horses – both fiction and non-fiction and is always spouting information about them. My 5yo is concentrating her efforts on learning how to read – she’s almost there! My 2yo is learning how to get along with her siblings without being “pushy” (<— "throwing tantrums") and my 3 week old baby is just content to absorb the atmosphere of the family he's been born into. 🙂

My kids are 11, 9, 7, 5, 4 & 2.

My kiddos are 8, 4, 2 & 8months. They are loving learning to swim (anything outside really) and focusing on music and art.
We have wanted to try the Life of Fred series. My daughter is 12. We are always interested in math, nature, and science. Thank you for this offering. All the best.

Jack, my six-year-old is passionate about swimming at the moment. Math comes in close behind because you know, money and telling time are big on his mind too. And of course Mindcraft. He loves reading, not him reading but me reading to him. He loves the Little House on the Prairie series. It’s funny because most people who have never read the books give me a goofy look. They are manly! Pa is a beast.
My two-year-old loves animals. He loves animal noises, trains and trucks. He also loves books, preferably touch and feel. He also believes every book should end with, “The End!”
My six-year-old is finishing up “Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons” and then he’ll be on his own. These would be great for him to ease into, and of course to hold onto for my two-year-old 🙂
Um, and I just saw some Mindcraft math, you guys are awesome, I will definitely check out the site.
