Summary
When Nanda is born, the whole of her world is the circle of her mother's arms. But as she grows, the world grows too. It expands outward, from her family, to her friends, to the city, to the countryside. And as it expands, so does Nanda's wonder in the underlying shapes and structures patterning it: cogs and wheels, fractals in snowflakes. Eventually, Nanda's studies lead her to become an astronaut and see the small, round shape of Earth far away. A geometric meditation on wonder, this is a modern classic that expresses our big and small place in the vast universe
Summary
First, Nanda's entire world is the circle of her mother's arms but as she grows, she sees the wonder of whirligigs, fractals in the snow, and even the circle of the Earth, itself
