Children’s Book Committee – October Pick

Mysterious Patterns:Finding Fractals in Nature
by Sarah C. Campbell, photographed by Sarah C. Campbell and Richard P. Campbell
(Boyds Mills Press/Highlights)
2014

Gorgeous photographs demonstrate a simple and straightforward explanation of fractals, geometric shapes made up of smaller parts that look like the whole shape. (7-10)

Our Young Reviewers say:

I liked most that they took things in nature and said they were shapes. I liked least that they never showed a fractal that wasn’t a (geometric) shape.
– Adam, 7, Savage, MN
Mysterious Patterns: Finding Fractals in Nature is about how to classify natural shapes that are irregular. The book includes information about fractals. I liked that the book includes a glossary, information on a scientist, and step-by-step instructions on how to make your own.
– Niko, 11, New York, NY
