Infinity and Me

Infinity and Me
By Kate Hosford, illustrated by Gabi Swiatkowska

Can a very small girl understand anything as enormous and complicated as infinity? Yes! This quirky philosophical book transforms the mind-numbing concept into a kid-friendly personal story. Silly, graspable ways to contemplate "forever" are presented via ice cream, families, school recess, stars, and shoes. With clever, old-fashioned illustrations.
