What's New?

February 3, 2016

When Henry Ford met Thomas Edison, what words of wisdom did he hear? Find out in the picture book with inspiration for every aspiring inventor, The Inventor's Secret: What Thomas Edison Told Henry Ford, by Suzanne Slade, illustrated by Jennifer Black Reinhardt.

New at my Mathematical Knitting Gallery, Sonderknitting, I've got yet more coloring pages for seeing patterns in Pascal's Triangle and Prime Factorization and making your own color codes. Read about an actual child trying one out!

And I've now updated all the individual review pages for my 2015 Sonderbooks Stand-outs. Be sure to check them out if you haven't already! I highly recommend all of the books.

Happy Reading!
