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:
"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."
