Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Birthday candles on a cake, light bulbs, the moon, reflected light, the sun, and the stars are all explained in this beautifully illustrated book from the "Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science Series." This book gives the reader a brief introduction to the question, "Where does light come from?" As all young scientists discover, one question always leads to another and readers will certainly have many more questions to ask by the end of this book. It is a shame that an additional reading list is not included.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2These titles provide brief yet clear information on their respective topics. Day Light discusses the nature of light, darkness, and seeing, and the role heat plays in generating light. Floating in Space discusses how astronauts move and cope with weightlessness in space. Amusing illustrations, verbal and pictorial, demonstrate how gravity works. Children will find much of the information both entertaining and interesting, such as the way astronauts eat with magnetized trays that hold utensils in place. Full-color paintings illustrate the first title and softly colored cartoons enhance the latter. Both are worthy additions to collections that need science materials for early grades.Katherine Borchert, Arlington Central Library, VA
