Who Stole the Magic Shard? Crown Prince Tyler raised his hands. The crowd fell silent at once. “I have made my decision,” the prince announced. “From this moment forward:

“Christopher Fredrico is banished from the kingdom of North Raec. If he is found within our territory, his life will be forfeit.”

All Chris wanted was to be a peaceful scholar who could spend a lot of time with his friends. Now, falsely accused of stealing a magical artifact, he is forced to leave the only home he knows. But as he and his friends travel towards the coast, they find a riddle that may save a kingdom—or cost them their lives.



Magic is a Treacherous Guide

As a child, Terrin of Xell was almost devoured by a spirit from the Dark Forest. She knows better than to trust magic. But when her friend Chris was accused of a magical crime he didn’t commit, she couldn’t let him face banishment alone. So she and her friends get caught up in a quest to recover an ancient relic, with only magic to guide them. And everything is going wrong.

First, Chris went missing, his trail washed away by spring rains. Now Arnold’s injured, and the countryside buzzes with rumors of war. In the forest, the wraiths—tiger-like, reptilian creatures—grow dangerously aggressive. Then Terrin starts seeing visions of a madwoman in the shadows.

Are Terrin and her friends being hunted? Or has the magic decided to turn against them?

Playful Math Books by Denise Gaskins

How to Learn Math Without Tears


All parents and teachers have one thing in common: we want our children to understand and be able to use math. Counting, multiplication, fractions, geometry‌—‌these topics are older than the pyramids. So why is mathematical mastery so elusive?

Written by a veteran homeschooling mom, Let’s Play Math offers a wealth of practical, hands-on ideas for exploring math from preschool to high school. Whether you want to balance and enrich a traditional curriculum or launch an off-road mathematical adventure of your own, this book helps you approach math as a family game, playing with ideas.

The Math You Can Play Series


Wouldn’t it be wonderful if math was something your kids WANTED to do?

Your children can practice their math skills with basic items you already have around the house, such as playing cards and dice. Each book in the Math You Can Play series features twenty or more kid-tested math games, offering a variety of challenges for all ages.

If you are a parent, these games provide opportunities to enjoy quality time with your children. If you are a classroom teacher, use the games as warm-ups and learning center activities or for a relaxing review day at the end of a term. If you are a tutor or homeschooler, make games a regular feature in your lesson plans to build your students’ mental math skills.
