Logic to the Rescue

Logic to the Rescue

Kris Langman

Price: FREE

This short book is a parable designed to introduce junior high and high school students to logical fallacies – but could be used with younger students as well. The simple plot was just enough to keep me interested, and I enjoyed the situations the author created to illustrate each fallacy. This story is a good introduction to the sometimes-dry topic of logical fallacies for any age. The story ends with a bit of a cliff-hanger, announcing the story will be continued in the next book. I also appreciated the high level of editing this ebook edition reflected.

What is it?

Logic to the Rescue is designed to teach kids critical thinking. A combination of fiction and non-fiction, it weaves examples of logical fallacies into a fictional sword-and-sorcery fantasy. Simple examples for testing a hypothesis and setting up experiments in chemistry and physics are integrated into the plot.

Who will it appeal to?

Kids ages 10 to 14, though adults who want to brush up on their knowledge of logical fallacies such as post hoc ergo propter hoc, ad hominem, and counting the hits may also enjoy the book.

Is it part of a series?

Yes, Logic to the Rescue is the first book in the series. The second book in the series is Castles and Chemistry.

Summary:

When Nikki Murrow lost her first High School debating match she did what anyone would do – she hid in a closet. She found comfort hiding among the mops and cleaning supplies, but she also found two imps – tiny creatures from a magical kingdom who lead her on a strange journey into the Realm of Reason.

There is Fuzz, an imp with a fondness for breaking the rules. And Athena, a model of impish manners, decorum and spotlessly clean clothes. Together they convince Nikki to join them in the battle against the king’s evil advisor, Maleficious.

In her debate class, Nikki learned the value of logic and reason, but who knew her ability to formulate a hypothesis would help a mud-splattered Knight redeem his tarnished reputation? Or that her knowledge of logical fallacies would rid the Realm’s Haunted Hills of ghosts?

Maleficious’s hold on the king is strong, but Nikki and the imps are determined that the Realm will not fall into his clutches. Will their mastery of logic rid the kingdom of the ignorance Maleficious is spreading, or will the inhabitants of the Realm fall back under the sway of centuries-old superstition?

Double Time: On The Oregon Trail

Double Time: On The Oregon Trail

Dixie Dawn Miller Goode

Price: FREE

This book took me back to all of the wonderful stories I remember reading in the Scholastic books I ordered as a child, especially Magic Elizabeth which was one of my favorites. The history in the book is wonderful and the characters are easily relatable. The story intertwines issues such as sibling rivalry and bigotry with ease. Growing up in the same part of the country as the author made it easy to visualize many of the places in the story, but they are very well described and anyone would get a sense of the areas they were traveling. This would be a great choice for any upper elementary or middle school girl to read, especially those who enjoy using their imagination.

Lynn Boyles

The past and present meet on the Oregon Trail when two girls travel the same trail with the same lap desk 152 years apart.

Kenyon is traveling in 2002 from Pittsburgh to Salem, OR. Her mother is pregnant and staying behind to close escrow on the house and then flying west to join the family. Kenyon; her 5 year old sister, Melissa and her father are in a Dodge Caravan, with a trailer hitch. Her Grandfather has given her a plain, black polished ebony wooden lap desk lined with a scented wood that still smells faintly of cedar. The box is filled with thick, creamy paper, envelopes, a calling card, a hand mirror, pens and pencils and a small Swiss army knife, postage and an electronic address book. Her Grandfather is not moving with them but plans have been made for him to fly out in December for a visit. Kenyon strongly resents being expected to entertain Melissa at the motels in the evenings. Her father has decided to take the long way and show his girls some of the wonders of this country and Melissa is excited but Kenyon is determined to not have any fun.

Traveling in 1850, Della, age 15, has already traveled from Northern Illinois to St. Louis, then a week by steamboat on the Missouri river. She stopped in Independence, MO to prepare for the journey and meet with the wagon train. She left behind her 60 year old grandmother who feels too old to attempt the trip, but who gave her a gift of a wooden lap desk. The desk is filled with paper, a small mirror, wooden handled pens with steel nibs, a metal letter opener, hair pins and a small sewing kit. Her younger brother, Orville, her father, and her pregnant mother are traveling with her. She has been asked to teach the younger children around the campfire in the evenings.

What happens when they open the desk to see the other girls journal?
