it was amazing

Stunning! "Swirl by Swirl" by Joyce Sidman (text) and Beth Krommes (artwork)is being bandied about as a consideration for this year's (2011) Caldecott Award. A unique "shape" book, it looks at the swirl as it is found in nature (from a ram's horn to an unfurling fern). In both wording and artwork the content literally swirls and flows across the page. Details abound about the shape as it is found in fauna and flora. This information is expanded upon in an excellent afterward that discusses all of the things a swirl is, including a growing thing, a strong thing, and a snuggling thing. Highly recommended for all ages! The swirl is a shape that I, as an adult, have never really pondered. I will look at nature through a new lens after reading this wonderful book!
