Editorial Reviews

Review

"The open-ended quality of the verse and the visual nature of the subject create plenty of opportunities for the art. The striking scratchboard illustrations use black lines, shapes, and crosshatched shading on white backgrounds to create strong compositions, while watercolor washes add subtle warmth and brilliance. . .There are, of course, many school uses for this, but just reading it aloud at home will make the everyday fascinating."—Booklist, starred review "The observations, from a few words to a couple sentences, are tucked neatly into Krommes’s gorgeous scratchboard spreads."—School Library Journal, starred review "Exquisitely simple and memorable."—Kirkus, starred review "From the endpapers that gather together all the spirals depicted to the spiraling text on the title page verso, this book is elegantly constructed, and as poetry, picture book, or nonfiction, a success in every way."—The Horn Book, starred review "This is one of those rare children’s books that make you look at the physical world differently. . .spirals are beautiful—whether we see in them hints of infinity, the promise of unfolding potential, or the embodiment of mathematical perfection."—Publishers Weekly, starred review —

5.0 out of 5 stars GORGEOUS INTRODUCTION TO SPIRALS IN NATURE
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 10, 2019
I got this non-rhyming board book as part of a Prime Book Box, Reading Level Baby-2. It is a sturdy, medium-sized 30-page book.

PROS:
- The art work is gorgeous. Images are rendered in unusually dark colors for a children’s book. The effect is just stunning.
- The book provides an interesting introduction to nature. Spirals are a part of nature, of course, but we get to see some animals children will often read about (mice, chipmunks, snails) and some they will rarely encounter (bull snake, octopus, spider monkey).
- Animals and natural phenomena are unobtrusively labeled in small print.
- Without mentioning math, this book is teaching an aspect of math.

CONS:
- I believe there is an error on the final page spread. The words “eastern gray squirrel” appear, but I believe the image of the squirrel was accidentally omitted from the page.
