I absolutely love your books. My niece used Two Plus Two Is Not Five, and it massively helped her. I am so thankful for your books.
My five children have used the multiplication and division books to learn and master their math facts. They really work! Friends (in homeschool groups) and family all tell me that my kids know their facts.
I'm using your books with all three of my kids, and my oldest is finishing division soon. Your books work, and are magical. We are currently road tripping across the country and my daughter does five pages each day, with no fuss, and actually enjoys it. She progresses with minimal guidance, and we are very satisfied.
I am currently using Two Plus Two is Not Five with my 2nd grade son, and thank you for this resource. My son made adequate progress in math in kindergarten, but flat lined in 1st grade, initially making 2nd grade difficult, scary, and unsuccessful. Traditional drill and practice, even time delay, were not moving his fluency or automaticity with math facts along. I was really at a loss, and as a school psychologist by training, perplexed. Your “tricks” have been just the instructional component he has needed to break the habit of finger-counting and to commit these facts to memory for him. I appreciate the progression of skills and have found that he is working exactly where he needs to be. I am purchasing the multiplication book in preparation for next year to have for when we complete this book. Thank you. I can only imagine how many children you have helped through this resource, but you can add one young man in Lexington, KY to your list!
As a homeschool mom of four, I am always looking for the best way to teach my kids who all have different learning styles. I came across these math drill workbooks a couple of years ago when my oldest was struggling to memorize addition math facts. Since then, we have worked through addition, multiplication, and are now on the division workbook! The tricks are easy for them to remember, and the daily drill practice is perfect! Grateful we found them when we did!

: We are a homeschooling family and enjoy working a page a day along with our other math curriculum to keep the facts fresh in our children’s minds. The tricks they have learned have stuck with them and Mom has even learned a few!
