PreSchool-Grade 2-An attractive introduction to pattern recognition. The foreword discusses patterns and where they can be found in nature. The rest of the book is in larger type and has a much simpler text-one line per page-accompanied by vivid full-color photographs that clearly depict the design or idea under discussion. Patterns are described in both general and specific terms. For example, a grouping of clouds lasts "only a short time," and a spider's web is viewed as a series of spirals. The last section poses questions designed to help children think about their own environments. Readers will certainly enjoy looking at the eye-catching photos and picking out the repeated images, but the ideas generated should go far beyond that. This is a great springboard for discussion; kids will have a wonderful time looking for patterns wherever they go.
