As always I am always on the hunt for great books to entertain my children! This one here caught my attention. As everyone knows my daughter recently wrote a book and now she is an avid reader. This book looks great for helping her discover Math and helping engage her mind.
Libellus de Numeros (Magicae Mathematica Book 1)
Jim West has delivered an amazing children’s book which is currently one of Amazon’s top-rated children’s books!!
Alex mysteriously gets transported to a strange world where Latin and Math combine with magical effects. With a cruel council leading the only safe city of its kind in this world, she will have to prove her worth to stay, as well as help this city as it is the target for two evil wizards who seek to destroy the city and its ruling council.
Will the council’s mighty army of guardians be enough to repel the onslaught of the two wizards’ wrath?
To help the city and also get back home, she will need the help of the greatest mathematician of all time, Archimedes. In a world where math is magic, Alex wishes she paid more attention in math class.
‘Magicae Mathematica‘ is a four-part fiction series about a girl named Alex who combinesmathematics and magic to solve some major problems in the story, as well as learn some valuable life lessons along the way. Why is this book important to us? Because Scholastic recently previewed a study they are set to release in January 2015, showing that books are a powerful tool to spark the imaginations of children. With the distraction of technology, celebrity-culture, and pop culture in abundance, it is important that parents, teachers and guardians not ignore how vital it is to encourage reading from an early age, but reading that promotes attributes of empowerment, rather than stereotypes.
