Growing Patterns Called “Seriously Cool”

Jennifer at Jean Little Library posted the first blog review for Growing Patterns, and it’s a good one.

“This book uses exquisite photographs and perfectly chosen text to explain the concept of patterns in nature, specifically Fibonacci numbers, in such a way that even a kindergartner can understand. Hey, I bet I could read this to PRESCHOOLERS and they would get it!
There’s not too much text, it’s simple enough for an easy reader; but each word is obviously perfectly chosen to explain a mathematical concept for any reader.”

I am so glad she likes it and will share it with her library’s readers. Jennifer’s post is tagged as a Nonfiction Monday post. This week’s host is Great Kid Books. Check out the round-up of reviews here.

    I’m glad you saw my review! I was so excited when this book showed up in my mailbox – I read Wolfsnail to many of my 1st and 2nd grade class visits last year and I can’t wait to try this one on them when I visit the schools in May!

    I, too, am looking forward to having the “real” book with me on school visits. I have been doing some previewing with drafts and, you are right, even the youngest kids get it.

    “seriously cool” and “each word obviously well chosen” and “exquisite photographs” such great and true descriptions.

    Loving the “seriously cool!” As a fellow mom of 3 boys, I know just how meaningful those words are. 🙂
