Echoes for the eye: poems to celebrate patterns in nature

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
Poet Barbara Juster Esbensen and painter Helen K. Davie reveal the patterns that repeat endlessly in the natural world. The branches of a tree are echoed in jags of lightning, in the veins of a leaf, and the veins of your body. Readers will find connections between hurricanes and galaxies, glaciers and rivers, snowflakes and honeycombs. This book sings the harmony among math, science, language, and art which is at the heart of whole language curricula.
