Fun and Engaging Math Lessons with a Biblical Worldview
Review by
We've been using Math Lessons for a Living Education for two years (both Level 1 and Level 2) and absolutely love this program, since it offers a gentle and thorough approach to mathematics for the early elementary years. There are plenty of activities that cover each mathematical concept being taught in the respective grade level, along with multiple lessons weeks that offer reviews of what was previously covered, so my child is always staying on top of what he's already learned. We enjoy it so much; I just purchased both Levels 3 and 4, because I know this is a program we are definitely sticking with for the long haul. I also recommended the matching (optional) Practice Makes Perfect books, which are fantastic resources to help supplement each Math Lessons for a Living Education program.
Takes stress out of Math

We recently started using Master Books for our math program and both of my girls now don't dread math. They are understanding concepts and engage with the stories. This is a super affordable program. We live outside the U.S., so the downloadable e-book was a perfect fit.
A great fit for a large family!

We are loving Master Books in our large family homeschool. I love the ease and “grab and go” aspect of this math curriculum. While it has the ease it’s wonderfully thorough and fun for my little ones! Thank you Master Books!!!

My little guy just loves this math. He flew through the 1st half of the book in a few weeks and has since slowed down a bit. He absolutely loves the stories
We love piggy math!

I am on child number 2 using piggy math and I wish I would have had it for my older kids! I love how gentle yet effective the lessons are. As a large family mom, I also love that I can buy the PDF and have permission to copy/print as many as I need! This is such a blessing and makes it so affordable to homeschool all my kids. Thank you Master Books for such great products!
We LOVE piggy math

Fun and engaging, my daughter has learnt so much (And so have I) with this curriculum! We love how much hands on learning there is!
My Kids Love Math
Review by
I'm so glad we're starting math with fun and games. It makes my wiggly kindergarten child want to do sit still long enough for math (10-15 minutes).
5 year old loves it!
Review by
My little girl has a hard time sitting down to do "school work" or paying attention for more than a few minutes so we have been doing a very relaxed approach with her which consists of mostly play and art. But this book....this is the one book she pulls out and sits to do without me asking her. She loves it, she actually does a few days in one sitting. So far very easy for her since she already knew her numbers and shapes. We will see how it goes as she goes further.
Perfect start
Review by
This is a fantastic way to foster a practical love for math in your child. My kids love the story-based approach.
Solid book with engaging stories
Review by
The stories were fantastic and made my children enjoy and look forward to math. The only downfall was that we ended up skipping a lot near the end since so much was review. However, my son learned the information well and enjoyed it.
