it was amazing
bookshelves: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, animals, picture-books, poetry, kindergarten

This poetry picture book about patterns in nature brought delight to my children, through its vibrant pictures, and the engaging poetry and the fascinating concepts. Franco and Jenkins explore the many forms and functions of nature’s geometry. They show the mathematical genius of the bee, as it fits hexagons side by side in its honeycomb. They light up our eyes with the symmetry of the moth, showing the "stunning 'eyes', perfectly matched on either side."
