Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa A. Caudill
Young children love to discover their shadows on a sunny day. Shadows are explained to them through the use of cheerful photographs and clear text. Readers will learn that night is the largest shadow on earth and that all objects can have a shadow if the conditions are right. Pictures of easy to guess shadows are shown with the caption "guess whose shadow?" As children turn the page, they will see the object along with its shadow. Kids will be encouraged to explore their own shadows and to make shadows using other objects. This is the perfect book for the toddler who is learning to explore and chase his or her own shadow.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3-Swinburne has taken a simple concept and created an interesting, joyful, and challenging experience for young readers. His pictures remind them that shadows are of all shapes and sizes and appear everywhere. And everything has one, even inanimate objects. The foreword explains what makes shadows, and the following 30 full-color photographs convince children that they are beautiful, intriguing, and puzzling. The inclusion of a guessing game makes the book more interactive than most, but some of the puzzles are quite easy. The pictures are full of life and action in this wonderful world of parades and swimming holes and waterfront walks.-Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, DC
Kirkus Reviews
Swinburne sets out to teach young children about how shadows are created, describing night as a shadow on the earth, and giving children tangible reasons for why shadows vary in size, shape, and location. The latter half of the book invites readers to guess the origins of the shadows in vivid full-color photographs; subsequent pages provide the answers to the mysteries. A foreword contains information regarding the scientific reasons for shadows, which can be explained to small children, but it is the array of photographs that truly invites youngsters to take a closer look and analyze the world around them with an eye for the details. (Picture book/nonfiction. 3-5). .
