American Fork, UT, January 17, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- If you’re a parent or educator seeking more mental stimulation for the young readers in your life, a new chapter book series by author Paige Peterson may be just what you’re looking for. "Logic Lotty: The Fortune Teller’s Spoon," available January 2015, is the first in a logic-based mystery series for children ages 7-10. It teaches deductive reasoning, critical thinking, and introduces the concept of a logic matrix.
Many parents prefer that their children read chapter books that not only entertain, but educate as well. Books that incorporate subjects like science, math, or geography are desired for their substance beyond an imaginative story. Logic is an important concept for children to learn, and logic puzzles for children have a myriad of benefits from increased memory to better organizational skills.
“'Logic Lotty: The Fortune Teller’s Spoon' is a funny and engaging introduction to logic puzzles,” says Michael Weiss, the Executive Editor of Logic Puzzles at Penny Publications—North America’s leading publisher of puzzle and fiction magazines. “The author, Paige Peterson, keeps the plot humming with a series of humorous and offbeat suspects. Best of all, she integrates logic charts into the story, showing how Lotty uses deduction and the process of elimination to reach her conclusion.”
Paige Peterson has been a freelance writer for almost fifteen years, writing venue critiques, press releases, reports for non-profit funding, marketing campaigns, health articles, and more for various companies. The idea for Logic Lotty came to her over a decade ago as a college student, when her simple love of logic puzzles landed her a perfect score on the analytics section of the GRE. Paige has a master’s degree from Westminster College, and is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the League of Utah Writers. "Logic Lotty: The Fortune Teller’s Spoon" is published by Hollingale Books, LLC (http://www.hollingale.com).
