About Patterns Patterns Everywhere: I see patterns everywhere, patterns big and small.
They fill the pages of this book, can you find them all?

Identifying patterns is an essential part of childhood development. They help children learn how to sequence, use reasoning skills and make logical connections and predictions.

Patterns, Patterns, Everywhere draws attention to the patterns that exist all around us, from the ocean’s coral reefs to the jungle to our dinner table. Children are invited to look for the patterns hidden in the layered illustrations and encouraged to find not just the patterns they can see, but also patterns they can hear, feel, and create.
