Annika Riz loves math more than anything, so when she hears about a sudoku contest at the local public library, she is determined to win it--maybe then her friends Kelsey Green and Izzy Barr will see that math is just as cool as reading and running. When the school carnival, the biggest fundraiser of the year, comes around, Annika realizes her class booth is losing money by selling their lemonade too cheaply. Annika embraces her math skills, saves the day, and shows her friends that math can be useful and even a bit of fun, too, in Claudia Mills's Annika Riz, Math Whiz.
Kelsey Kline is the best reader in the third grade?well, maybe tied for best with know-it-all Simon Ellis. When the principal, Mr. Boone, announces a school-wide reading contest, complete with a pizza party for the winning class and a special certificate for the top readers in each grade, she knows she?s just the person to lead Mrs. Molina?s third graders to victory. But how can they win when her classmate Cody Harmon doesn?t want to read anything, and even Kelsey?s best friends Annika and Izzy don?t live up to her expectations? And could Simon possibly be reading all of those books that he claims he is, or is he lying to steal Kelsey?s rightful spot at the top?
