Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production

Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature is “the newest picture book format math book to add to your shelves. It does contain a couple difficult concepts, but with the right grown-up by their side, there’s very little in Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature that a child won’t be able to figure out on their own.”

“Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers is Nature is a photographic book which brings a somewhat mysterious subject to life for children between the ages of 8 and 12. It could be paired with a nature walk to count the petals on flowers, or children might enjoy examining actual pinecones and pineapples!”

“Math teachers will appreciate the clarity of presentation, and the appended glossary and related miscellanea. Children who are ready to move beyond counting books and into brain-tickling areas of mathematics will welcome this introduction.”

“Growing Patterns wonderfully illustrates a connection between nature and numbers. Sarah Campbell has certainly taken the time to stop and smell (and even count) the roses, and in this delightful book she takes us along in her journey. In so doing, she encourages us all to see and to explore what is right in front of our noses!”
