Picture Book Review: "Spotty, Stripy, Swirly: What Are Patterns?"

Spotty, Stripy, Swirly: What Are Patterns? is a book in the Clever Concept series by Jane Brocket. The book uses vivid photographs to teach what a pattern is, how to recognize specific patterns, and where some patterns can be found. Stacking and sorting objects to create patterns is illustrated and encouraged. The images used to demonstrate patterns include flowers and leaves in nature, food displays in stores, cake decorations, quilts, afghans, and gardens. Some of the patterns used include stripes, zig zags, circles, and polka dots. The book encourages looking for patterns in the world around you, and creating your own patterns while at play. Patterns found in sidewalks, buildings, floors, ceilings, stairs, and everyday life are used to further illustrate the concept.
