Sharon Morisette's accessible text introduces readers to the concept of tessellations, while Philomena O'Neill's illustrations offer a clear visual to what tiling is—children will enjoy finding the tessellations hidden throughout the images.

Leseprobe
Enzo studied magic books, as his papa asked. But in secret he read others, as well: books by great astronomers, mathematicians, and physicists. “Oh, to someday be a grande matematico, like Galileo Galilei or Johannes Kepler,” he dreamed, as he watched the stars wheel through the sky.
