The Bard of Biology (Logic to the Rescue Book 3)

by Kris Langman

Logic to the Rescue is designed to teach kids critical thinking. A combination of fiction and non-fiction, it weaves examples of logical fallacies into a fictional sword-and-sorcery fantasy. Simple examples for testing a hypothesis and setting up experiments in chemistry, physics, and biology are integrated into the plot.

Though not a textbook, the Logic to the Rescue series can be a useful addition to a homeschool library for kids ages 10 to 14. The series is designed to kick-start kids’ interest in logic, critical thinking, and science through the use of an engrossing story.

The Bard of Biology is the third book in the series.

Big Life Hacks: To Cut Through Mountains and the B.S

by A Robertson

What are life hacks?

I’m reluctant to even use this word, because the word ‘life hacks’ is contaminated with questionable productivity combinations or a mixture of common sense. Take a quick look on the Interwebs and you’ll find site after site with low quality content capturing the latest oddball idea that might make you a better omelet but won’t significantly transform your life in any way.

This book is not a self-help guide to becoming world-class or the absolute best in your given trade. But it is a story about optimizing your life as effectively as possible and breaking through a humdrum life without swathes of cash and talent,

College Quick and Dirty: Writing the Personal Statement- The Outline

by Shaun-Teka Joyner

College Quick and Dirty is a miniseries version of the book “Don’t Get Rejected: How to Get Into the College of Your Dreams”. The book asks students “How do you eat an elephant?” and gives them the answer “The same way you eat everything else, one bite at a time”. The Quick and Dirty series breaks the elephant that is college applications and admissions, into smaller, more manageable bite.

These books are perfect for any student (grades 6th-12th) or parents, trying to navigate the college prep and college admission process. Written by a former college admission reader, this book is the ticket to getting admitted to the college of your dreams.
