Infinity: The Magical Cycles of the Universe

We rated this book:


The brilliant colors and eye-catching forms that illustrate this book on the continuity of life enchant the eye and cause this reader to gasp at its entrancing beauty. Each large, exquisitely colored page is annotated with a simple but elegant saying, either from a folk tale, poem, or past writing.

A page covered with a raccoon amidst soil detritus and surrounded by seed pods and plants describes nature as wise with an added comment by John Steinbeck. The seasonal cycles change with the Earth’s journey around the sun. A quote by Jules Verne accompanies the radiant, almost phosphorescent depiction of the multiple life forms found in the sea.

The life cycles of chickens and storks pictorially depict the continuity of life, while the reader is encouraged to gaze beyond this home ground and examine the Moon and boundless outer universe. Even Albert Einstein is quoted in a succinct note that advises the reader to examine nature in order to understand everything better.

This Spanish children’s writer and her illustrator have created a stunning collection of art paired with just a few words of wisdom that will trigger thought and curiosity in the young reader.
