Village Books - Bellingham, WA (July 27)

I am pleased to announce that I will be traveling to Bellingham (WA) for a "Lit Live" author event/presentation/book signing on July 27. It will all begin at 4:00 pm, and I invite all of you in the greater Bellingham area to stop by for a visit.

Though this won't be my first visit to Bellingham (I did earn a Master's Degree from Western Washington University), it will be my first visit to Village Books, and I am really excited to share the story of the Fibonacci Zoo with kids of all ages (even those that are bringing their own kids to the event!)

Blogger Reviews

The whole concept of blogger reviews is new to me. But I really like it! Arbordale sends these bloggers copies of my book and they post their impressions and review on their blogs. Then, as a fun way to promote the books, they hold a contest to give them away to a lucky winner. The blogger generates traffic to his or her site, and the author (me!) gets recognition for his book and gets potential readers connected to his book.

I'm really happy to see the first set of review come in. Here is a sampling:

Feathered Quill Book Reviews - June 2015

"This is an excellent book to introduce young students to numbers and patterns. The visual imagery presented in this book will make it easy for students to understand and grasp Fibonacci sequencing. Simply introducing mathematical concepts sans a way for children to visualize them can be a daunting task for many. In addition to Eli's notebook there are small sidebars with the equations and sequence (2 + 3 = 5 and 1 1 2 3 5). The artwork is very vibrant and appealing, drawing one's eye to the animals. In the back of the book there are four pages of activities as well as free complementary activities on the publisher's website."
