It is not surprising that many children hate mathematics. For many different reasons, they find it a dilemma they need to overcome in school. Like these kids, Caley also hates learning mathematics until she meets a new friend who needs her help—a kind of help that requires her ability to do mathematics. Will she learn to love mathematics to be able to help her new friend? Readers can find out in between the covers of author Lynda Page’s Caley’s Secret Garden.
This book follows the story of Caley who, like many children, hates Mathematics and refuses to do it in class. To make sure that Caley completes her work, Mrs. Grumble, her teacher, sends it home so that Caley’s mother Lisa can help. However, she really hates the subject even at home because she doesn’t find it important to her dream of becoming a movie star. When her mother leaves her alone in the room, she escapes to her secret garden where magical things happen. She makes friends with a talking frog, who teaches her a valuable lesson in life and changes her attitude toward learning Mathematics. How? The next thing that happens is quite a surprise.
Lynda has woven not only a delightful story that will entice children to read, but has created a medium to help children understand the importance of mathematics in their everyday life. Amusement, life lessons and inspiration are rolled into one motivational instrument in Caley’s Secret Garden.
