Swirl by Swirl: Spirals in Natureby Joyce Sidman, Beth Krommes
A Caldecott medalist and a Newbery Honor-winning poet celebrate the beauty and value of spirals.What makes the tiny snail shell so beautiful? Why does that shape occur in nature over and over again in rushing rivers, in a flower bud, even inside your ear?
With simplicity and grace, Krommes and Sidman not only reveal the many spirals in nature from fiddleheads to elephant tusks, from crashing waves to spiraling galaxies but also celebrate the beauty and usefulness of this fascinating shape.
