Magnetic Magic - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Arbordale Publishing.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Book Synopsis:

Dena loves using magnets to perform magic tricks for the kids at the pool. When Enrique arrives in town, he doesn’t like that Dena is fooling the others. He gives her a century-old treasure map and Dena uses her compass and tools to plot the location of the treasure. To her surprise, the treasure is not where it should be! What could cause her compass to lead her off course? When she discovers the answer, will Dena keep fooling the other kids with magic tricks or will she help them learn about magnetism and the earth’s shifting magnetic poles?

My Review:

A book that shows how magnetism can be used in magic, Magnetic Magic tells an educational story in a way that is engaging to children.  The main character, Dena, shows the smaller children some magic tricks.  Enrique shows up and presents Dena with a map, daring her to find the hidden spot.  Dena is unable to find it at first, then realizes that the Earth's magnetic field is the reason for that.  After she realizes she's been "fooled" by Enrique, Dena decides to start showing the science behind her magic tricks.

The "For Creative Minds" section in the back of the book has a comprehensive portion that explains what magnets are and how they work.  It also has a page on 'Map Skills' and four activities on how to 'Make Magnetic Magic', with one of them being how to float a magnet in a pipe.

Magnetic Magic is a Fall 2016 release from Arbordale Publishing.

It has to be reading. She is a wonderful reader and would rather do that than anything else right now.
