It seems like a magical week. Even though part of the country is burning up with record heat, here in Oklahoma we’re having a reprieve from the high temperatures. The cooler temps and rain could not have been more welcome.
This Tuesday I will speak to the children in the Summer Reading Program at the Enid Public Library. I will read the first chapter of my latest book, Ian’s Magic to them and then we will create a story of our own. Kids love magic and so do I. So, since school is out and children need to read, we’ll read and create our own story.
Not everyone liked math, but to Ian it was magical.
Ian Conner learned in the first grade he could perform magic using math. And this year, the prize for the annual math contest is $500! Ian really wants to win, but he knows classmate Thomas Martin will be stiff competition. Thomas wins every year. And this year he has a college tutor helping him prep for the contest!
Ian decides to study accelerated math, hoping it will help him win. But when the day of the competition arrives Ian must make a difficult choice – hope his studying helps him win fair and square – or cheat using his “math magic” to win the contest.
If you’re in the Enid area, come by Tuesday the 29th from 3-5 pm and join us as we read Ian’s Magic and create a story of our own. I’ll have books available if you’d like to purchase one.
Ian’s Magic is available at Putnam Six bookstore in Enid and online at https://books2read.com/u/bMRv1a.
