5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty and poetry in nature, November 15, 2011
This review is from: Swirl by Swirl: Spirals in Nature (Hardcover)
From snail shells and sheep horns to tornados and galaxies, spirals occur over and over in our world. This is the unifying concept of Joyce Sidman's lovely new book, Swirl by Swirl. Each page takes us through a different aspect of nature's spirals: chipmunks and woodchucks "coiled tight, warm and safe," lady ferns "unwrapping themselves," elephant trunks "clinging tight."

The author and illustrator are both top notch. Joyce Sidman won the 2011 Newberry Honor for her book Dark Emperor and Other Poems of the Night, and Beth Krommes won the 2009 Caldecott Medal for her illustrations of The House in the Night. Together they create an artistic and poetic journey through nature, each page filled with motion and resonance.

Geared towards preschool and elementary school age children, this is a wonderful book for helping children to observe the shapes they see in nature. Each illustration has detailed labels of the objects pictured, and there's a wonderful explanatory index at the back of the book, making it a great supplemental book for teaching science.
