A fantastical science fiction adventure where a girl (Marie) uses her mathematical wits and virtues to solve challenging puzzles. This book inspires creative and innovative thought while nurturing character development. A truly unique piece of literature.








Marie's Atlas is a fun and engaging book aimed at middle grade students, or 9-12 year olds. It is jam packed with action and adventure to keep young readers interested. It's also full of mathematical puzzles and concepts that will get them thinking and learning without even realizing it! I am all about anything that integrates multiple subjects together, and Marie's Atlas does just that. You get to go on an adventure with Marie as she tests her knowledge and herself. There are many great opportunities for discussion with this one, from math lessons to lessons on trusting and pushing yourself. This is a great read aimed at children, but I think adults will enjoy it as well. I know I did.

ALSO! Sophia has created a free enrichment packet to go with the book! You can grab that here!
