Little Town of Spirals invites us on a whimsical journey to a wonderful place where spirals can be found almost everywhere!
Cindy Matyi's delightful story and beautiful paintings were inspired during travels in Ireland when she found herself showing a young lad how to draw spirals. Together they created a magical town where spirals rose from chimneys, blossomed into flowers and brought fun to so many places.
Since then, Cindy always asks her workshop students, "Where do we find spirals in nature?" The answers are amazing, opening eyes even more to the wonder-filled patterns in our natural world!
Young readers will have fun looking for repetition of spirals, shapes and characters and especially finding the bird with the brush featured on each page. The book encourages young ones to create even more stories from the pictures they see. This book is also a wonderful introduction to Celtic Art for young artists, and invites them to try their hand at creating spirals!
