Swirl by Swirl: Spirals in Nature by by Joyce Sidman

| , |

A spiral is an elegant form, whether it turns up in a staircase, a seashell, or in your own DNA. Joyce Sidman takes readers on a hunt for spirals in the natural state in her latest picture book, and children (adults too) will be amazed to see how many she turns up. Caldecott winner Beth Krommes provides illustrations that are as elegant as the spiral itself. The simple words of the text, combined with the more in-depth notes at the end, offer an opportunity to marvel at the detailed design apparent in God’s glorious creation. Ages 4 and up.
