Book Recommendation

Jan 23, 2013

Do you ever have trouble trying to figure out whether a book is fiction or nonfiction?  Infinity and Me written by Kate Hosford with illustrations by Gabi Swiatkowska talks about a concept, an idea, within the pages of a story.This is the book jacket for this title.

Have you ever stared up at the star-filled sky wondering how far it goes and how many stars there are?  What is infinity?  Is it a number, a symbol, a family, a time, a noodle or a piece of music?  Who can you believe?

My favorite passage in this story is:
I was starting to think that my questions about infinity might be endless.  It was time for me and my red shoes to go home.

Would I recommend this book?  Of course, I would.  The light, whimsical illustrations perfectly match the narrative journey of the little girl who discovers her own meaning of infinity.

For educators there is a great curriculum  guide to accompany this title.
