Swirl by Swirl: Spirals in Nature

January 18, 2017

I don't want to walk around in circles walk around in circles walk around in...


It's a description of a bunch of different swirls and spirals in nature, from galaxies to sheep horns to plants, to small furry animals that sleep in spirals to keep warm. It's kind of a strange topic, but there's a lot of good information. The art is good. It's pretty simple, although it's kind of like a book about circles. It's kind of unusual to be fascinated by spirals, or any shape for that matter. Spirals don't really do anything by themselves, as it's more what is spiraling and why that is the important thing. But getting kids to recognize the pattern of their existence is the first step.


Spirals are awesome.
