Geometry is explained with humor in Sir Cumference and the First Round Table, making it fun and accessible for beginners. What would you do if the neighboring kingdom were threatening war? Naturally, you'd call your strongest and bravest knights together to come up with a solution. But when your conference table causes more problems than the threat of your enemy, you need expert help.

With the help of the carpenter, Geo of Metry, this sharp-minded team designs the perfect table conducive to discussing the perfect peace plan. Thanks to Sir Cumference and the First Round Table, even the most hesitant will be romancing math.
Mary is certain that her parents are giving her new shoes for Christmas, but the Depression has hit her Saskatchewan farming family hard. Mary tries to hide her disappointment when she receives a crude homemade doll instead. She ends up liking the doll much more than she expects, but the doll fuels the rivalry between Mary and her older sister, Judith. Then, when the doll disappears a few weeks later during a snowstorm, Mary and Judith's relationship changes once again.
Once upon a time, in a land of magic, there lived a princess who did NOT want to marry. She wanted to have adventures like the knights, or rule a kingdom like her father. She didn't like sitting around in pretty dresses, eating daintily with fancy silverware, and speaking in a soft, ladylike voice. And those were the only things a queen, ever got to do. This is not your classic folktale princess.

Magnets are useful parts of our everyday lives. They make motors work. They keep cabinets closed. They also do many unexpected things that appear to be impossible until we understand them. This book explores the useful and amazing world of magnets. The experiments and demonstrations in this book use inexpensive ring magnets and common household items such as paper clips, string and metal washers. The eBook contains eleven movies demonstrating some of the experiments like floating a magnetized pin to make a magnet, and using magnetic repulsion to create an anti-gravity effect. Questions accompany each experiment to encourage exploration beyond the book. There's also a section on using magnets across the curriculum. The author was head science teacher at Science in the City Summer Camp.
