Sarah Campbell's Growing Patterns Depicts Nature's Mysterious Fibonnaci Sequence

Sarah C. Campbell’s children’s book on the Fibonacci sequence is featured during the Fox TV show “Touch.” During the nationally-televised premier episode, one of the show’s main characters uses “Growing Patterns” to learn more about the Fibonacci sequence.

Fibonacci numbers are among nature’s greatest mysteries. Named after a famous mathematician, the number pattern is simple: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13. . . . Each number in the sequence comes from adding the two numbers before it.

What’s the mystery? The pattern crops up in the most unexpected places. It is found in the disk of a sunflower, the skin of a pineapple, and the spiral of a nautilus shell. No one knows how nature came up with the sequence.

Sarah C. and Richard P. Campbell introduce the Fibonacci sequence through a series of stunning photographs. Young readers will soon be seeing nature through new eyes, looking for Fibonacci numbers in daisies, pinecones, leaf patterns, seashells, and more. The book is published by Boyds Mills Press, a member of the Highlights family of companies.
