Get the guide books for sure, because they are endearing and interesting and adorable and wonderful and they make your kid fall in love with doing math (even if they already love math)
Kjersti
I'm really impressed with the care and detail, not only of the math thinking, but the visuals, the humor, and the story.
Carol Lloyd
... the response that I have seen has been really tremendous. What seems to stand out… is that these books don’t dumb the work down nor do they talk down to the child.
Brian Cronin
...every time the students see me, they get very excited and ask if it's a "Beast Academy Day." They love the characters and enjoy the humor in the Guide book and they persevere to complete as much of the Practice book material as they can.
Lauren Croix
My son is really loving this program... never thought I’d have to tell him to take a break from math to do his other work.
Michelle
I'm pretty sure they are the most engaging math books I've ever encountered, and they pull this off without watering down the content at all (quite the contrary, in fact).
Jessie Mathisen
The best part for me is that my children can read the guidebook and do the practice work independently, yet I know they're being challenged.
Beast Academy parent
Hearing my tiny 6 year old explain how to square numbers that end in 5 has been amazing...Because of Beast Academy, I now have the opportunity to watch my son’s face light up when I say it's time for math.
Leslie
Beast Academy became known as “fun math”—full of challenging problems that forced them to think rather simply to grind away at computations.
Thomas
I love your books! They are the best things that ever happened to math. Lizzie is my favorite character because she is so much like me. She is so sweet, gentle, and who doesn't like dragons!
Beast Academy Student
I mentioned that [my son] was almost ready to begin the next level of Beast Academy. Immediately, [he] went and got it so we could start right away, and then begged that I keep going after the first section.
