About the Book

Overview

Writer Jane Yolen and photographer Jason Stemple continue their acclaimed series of poetry books in this collection focusing on shapes and forms found in nature. They uncover the beauty and variety of natural forms in twelve masterful poems and photographs. A circle? Look no farther than the sun. An oval? Eggs-actly inside a nest. A crescent? The moon provides an assortment to admire each month. Jane Yolen's well-crafted, elegant poems allow readers not only to look at shapes anew but to experience them on an emotional level. Jason Stemple's stunning photos unveil the symmetry of simple forms that are often overlooked.
