"I was happy to see the worksheets for my daughter to work on between levels. I
can really see if she has mastered each level before we move on to the next one. We just started Level
E, the “Number Sandwich” strategy where we just finished playing the board game called “Build a Sandwich”,
and we both really had a lot of fun laughing and playing together. Before we bought Giggle Facts™,
Cindy showed very little interest in learning her math, but now she loves playing these games with my husband and I so much
that she’s asking to play them almost every day. Thank you very much Laurie – what a wonderful
math program you’ve created!"
