This book is wonderfully illustrated. My daughter can't help but be totally engaged in finding every swirl in nature. She now points out swirls/spirals every time she sees one.
My Review: This is a beautiful illustrated book that tells what makes things like snail shells, bull snake, eastern chipmunk, millipede, hibiscus, sunflower, funnel tornado, and many more spirals. Mathematic explains that a spiral is a curve in the plane or in the space, which runs around a centre in a special way. This spirals in nature shows how the bull snakes, woodchuck, harvest mouse and more like to coil tight in small places to keep warm and safe. In some animals and plants spiral shape start small and gets bigger and swirl, like the swimming nautilus, lady fern. Some use their spiral to defend themselves like the Merino sheep while the spider monkeys use theirs to hold on tight. Highly recommend this beautiful book for classroom teaching. 5 Stars FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
