The Wright 3 by Blue Balliett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Picked up The Wright 3 in the school media center. I loved Chasing Vermeer, I mean I LOVED it. So well written, smart, Funny interesting, the type of book I would have devoured at 11 and in fact did devour it.
This book picks up with the same awesome pace and interesting history, math quotes and art! Frank Lloyd Wright has always been a fascinating persona and this book highlights it!
I loved this book. It is a great read and really enforces the importance of math and geometry. It also introduces architecture as a career option for young kids!
Additionally, who does not love a book that brings up the Fibonacci sequence! " Fibonacci numbers appear in nature, particularly in spiral shapes..."
Finally one of the best lines from the book was:
"Coincidence reminds me of the repetitions of geometric patterns in the Robie House. The more you look the more you see it." It also made me think about fractals which all go along with it, so once again coincidence, repetition and math are everywhere in life!
Of course now along with The Calder Game I need to read the Invisible Man!
