Children's LiteratureGrab a notebook and a pencil and go outside to learn about sunshine, shadows and the reason for the seasons. This book helps kids find answers on their own just like scientists do—by observing, taking notes, making comparisons and carrying out simple experiments. Engaging color photographs on every page capture the excitement of children discovering "there are all kinds of ways to have fun with the sun." Each activity has clear step-by-step directions and can be completed with everyday household items. Written by a former editor of children's science books and one who has academic degrees in biology, science and environmental journalism, this book is informative, accurate and engaging. The "To Find Out More" page lists books, places to visit and the publisher's website which can be used to track down more information on the sun and shadows. An excellent addition to classroom and school libraries and a book that parents and younger kids will have fun sharing. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 5 to 8.
