Cover: A Star in My Orange: Looking for Nature's Shapes

“Ordinary books of shapes concentrate on the geometric basics, such as squares, circles, and triangles. Rau looks to nature for inspiration and finds stars not just in the sky but in an orange half, a starfish, and a snowflake. She sees spirals in a seahorse, a ram’s horns, and a seashell. The concepts are a little less obvious than the commonly discussed shapes, but they are perfectly clear within the colorful, well-focused photos of scenes in nature. . . A very simple yet well-designed and effective book presenting fundamental forms that children can observe in nature. . .” —Booklist
