Small World When Nanda is born, the whole of her world is the circle of her mother s arms But as she grows, the world grows too It expands outward from her family, to her friends, to the city, to the countryside And as it expands, so does Nanda s wonder in the underlying shapes and structures patterning it cogs and wheels, fractals in snowflakes Eventually, Nanda s studies lead her to become an astronaut and see the small, round shape of Earth far away A geometric meditation on wonder, Small World is a modern classic that expresses our big and small place in the vast universe.
