Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Patterns are everywhere in nature. Through lively photographs and simple words, young readers of Spanish and English will learn to identify shapes and designs as they look in water, around the neighborhood, and even in their snacks! “On the first page of this gorgeous photo-essay, Swinburne defines patterns as ‘lines and shapes that repeat, opening the way for them to be found everywhere. And find them he does - on the striped watermelons of summer and ridged pumpkins of autumn; in spider webs and on scaly snakes....Using a variety of simple questions, he encourages youngsters to look for patterns in likely places such as flowers and insects, as well as in unlikely ones such as the inside of their lunch sack. By the time the last page is turned, even the young children will understand the concept.” –Booklist “An attractive introduction to pattern recognition....Readers will certainly enjoy looking at the eye-catching images, but the ideas generated should go far beyond that. This is a great springboard for discussion; kids will have a wonderful time looking for patterns wherever they go.” –School Library Journal “A simple, straightforward text introduces patterns, focusing on their varied forms and their prevalence in nature. Stunning photographs look at patterns in such things as the ocean, ponds, spider webs, snakeskins, fruits, and rocks. A subject with lots of preschooler appeal.” –Horn Book Guide


Vivid photographs show natures exquisite designs.
