“Infinity and Me” Book Review

By Julie Samrick


The wonder of how many stars are in the sky. The cyclical figure eight shape of a racetrack. How about the boundless love of a Grandma? Author Kate Hosford uses these concrete images and more to explain the abstract concept of infinity in her new picture book Infinity and Me (Carolrhoda Picture Books).

The young protagonist, Uma, is on a mission to find out what “infinity” means so she asks the different people in her life. From her music teacher to her best friend, each small anecdote adds up to a definition that elementary school aged kids will appreciate and understand.

The illustrations are as beautiful as the book.

  1. Whenever we talk about infinity I just keep saying “I love you” over and over again…and then say “see, infinity means it never ends, so I would have to say I love you everyday, all day, forever.”
