It is summertime and hopefully you will get time outdoors to enjoy nature. The new book Wings, Waves, & Webs by Robin Mitchel Cranfield might inspire you go on a pattern hunt next time you are out.
Simple, beautiful illustrations introduce readers (both young and older) to some of the wonderful patterns in nature that are all around us. Concepts start out with spots and strips and build in sophistication to radial symmetry, waves, and meanders. Each pattern is described in an easy to understand way with two illustrated examples and just a few sentences. The final spread depicts a cheerful nature scene and encourages readers to identify as many patterns as they can.
