This book captures the imagination. How anyone could have the patience to photograph snowflakes as they are portrayed is amazing. Great book to just have sitting around and leaf through at your leisure!

She was shuffling her paws. Sweetecho: Dawnpaw i could have helped you. She said. Im your mother. I love you. Dawnpaw: i.......i........i........i know. She said in a quiet voice. When will i ever have a father? She asked. Sweetecho: she looked at her daughter. No one loves me like that yet. She said. Hopefully soon though.

I am using this book to bring the understanding of symmetry and Mandelbrot to the classroom. The pictures are terrific and the technology is amazing.
