Summary
This book "encourages kids to observe and discover patterns in the natural world that reveal deep, unexpected connections. For example, look up, and you will see the branches of a tree. If you could see underground, you would also find its roots branching. And inside yourself, in your lungs and veins, there is also branching ... Why is that? It turns out that where there is flow, there is branching. There are other patterns around us all the time, such as spiraling and spinning, the way shapes stack, the way things crack. And if you look into any of these patterns, you will find a shared 'logic' in the objects that express them"--
