CHESTERFIELD, Mo. (January 24, 2008) – Sarah and the Geodes, a new book by author J. R. Miller, is the exciting story of nine-year-old Sarah, who is kidnapped by thugs, the Geodes that rescue her and the lessons learned by all involved.
With math skills in the United States lagging behind other countries, author Miller hopes his book will inspire others to take an interest in math and thus further the learning of advanced mathematics. The original idea for Sarah and the Geodes came to the author in a dream about geometric superheroes. With encouragement from his wife, and inspiration from his niece Sarah, the book was born.
In an easy-to-read format, children in grades three through six will see that mathematics does not have to be boring and that there are many practical applications in every-day life. Through a suspenseful course of actions and gorgeous illustrations, Sarah and the Geodes shows examples of everyday objects that are shaped like geometric shapes as well as displaying valuable messages of honesty and teamwork.
Sarah and the Geodes is the perfect book for anyone who wants to get a fresh outlook on mathematics while being entertained at the same time.
