Booklist (Angela Leeper)

Cover: Patterns in Winter

In this entry in the Patterns in the Seasons series, children can learn to recognize patterns as they relate to the winter season. The book sports an early-reader trim size and large text with useful repetition. In the opening double-page spread, the text reads, “Look at the cookies. What is the pattern?” Here children can see a plate of cookies with a distinct spiral pattern. In the pages that follow, the basic text repeats, and children can identify, for example, stripes on a sweater and polka dots on wrapping paper. The crisp and colorful photographs provide excellent context clues, though adult assistance may be needed, as the patterns are not identified. A concluding spread depicts multicultural youngsters in a snow- and pattern filled scene, allowing readers to recap their observation skills. — Angela Leeper
