Because all of life is learning…
You and your children will see that a real education is both broad and deep which is why Life of Fred encompasses so much more than maths. You will marvel at The Milky Way and Protons in the observable universe. The Periodic Table of the Elements is discussed in as much detail as why English teachers have it rougher than math teachers and how to find balance in life.
And of course, because you are reading a book with HONEY in the title you will also discover four answers to where honey comes from and four answers to “Where do bees live?” and why bees don’t make honeycombs in the shape of squares.
For all this delightful learning jump into learning with Life of Fred. The answers are included in the textbook and when you are done with Honey, you are ready for Life of Fred, Ice Cream.
