Swirl by Swirl: Spirals in Nature is, as the title states, about spirals in nature, from snakes curled up in their hole, to nautilus shells, to fiddlehead ferns. It's a fun read-aloud, but the "story" is a little underwhelming compared to the illustrations. It takes something interesting and makes it a little... boring. The picture really does tell the story, in the case of this book, and the gorgeous cross-hatched illustrations are really great. This would be a good book for a 1st or 2nd grade science curriculum, but you'd need to do some supplemental explaining.

Ages 5-7
