K-Gr 2-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. While this slight book may be an eye-opener for some children, others may find it too abstract (e.g., locating a star in an orange or daisy) and those expecting a book of shapes might question where deer antlers fit in. This book would probably be best explored by parents and children together.-Jessica Snow, Boston Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
