Logic to the Rescue

Kris Langman

Price: FREE

This is a fiction book which mixes logic in with the story, making it an entertaining read for teens in the 12 to 14 age group. Maybe a little younger if you have a smart 10 or 11 year old.
The two imps in the story reminded me a little of Dobby the elf from the second Harry Potter book. The main character, Nikki, is a good role model for teenage girls. She’s very level-headed and wants to be a chemist like her Mom.
A useful and fun guide to logic and critical thinking.

Book Kid

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?

ABC Animals – An Alphabetical Rhyming Children’s Picture Book

Mark Smith

Price: FREE

The pictures are magnificent, perfect for the young reader to enjoy. In no time at all children will take over reading ABC Animals on their own. The rhyming pattern is written emphasizing a set of two letters, which encourages children to recognize and remember the last rhyming words of each sentence. For example, O is for Octopus who has eight creepy legs. P is for Parrot who sits on its eggs. The ultimate result is children reading the entire sentences without effort.

Mary Crocco

Picture books for children are a great way to keep small children entertained, and that is exactly what ABC Animals does from start to finish!

Get ready for an A B C adventure unlike anything you have ever seen. Not only is each letter of the alphabet associated with an animal in a fun and humorous way that is sure to put a smile on your child’s face, but the entire book has a catchy rhyming rhythm that children find irresistible.

Everything is brought to life in full color high definition illustrations that seem to pop right off the screen. Kids of all ages will appreciate the humor which will help them remember all of the animal facts that are tossed in the mix. Here is a quick sample, minus the great illustrations and high definition images.

I is for Iguana, a Lizard that eats cactus fruit.
J is for Jaguar whose cubs are so cute.
K is for Kangaroo an animal with a pouch.
L is for the Labrador Retriever who loves to sleep on the couch.

This title has been designed to take full advantage of the bright high definition displays of today’s modern Kindle devices, but the images still look great in the black and white e-ink display as well.

This book has been written with children in mind, but parents will need to help their children read some of this book. Parents and children, prepare to be amazed!
