Cover: A Star in My Orange: Looking for Nature's Shapes
“Through one-sentence descriptions and full-color, uncluttered photographs, readers are taken on a journey of discovery in the natural world. Rau begins with a star in the sky and then moves to objects that children might be able to examine more closely to find that shape, including an orange, a starfish, a snowflake, and a daisy. The author’s other examples from nature are sometimes patterns: ‘branching’ as seen in deer antlers and a child’s extended arms and hands, and others as found (but not named) in a bee’s honeycomb, a turtle shell, and pinecones. The spiral is also considered and leads into the final page where the text comes full circle: ’I’m spinning, just like the Earth through the sky of stars.’ An illustrated spread at the end of the book provides additional notes.”
