Children's Literature - Vicki FooteThis nonfiction book defines and explores light and color. Subjects include sources of light and how it travels, the colors hidden in light, and how light behaves when it meets an object. Reflection and refraction are explained with helpful charts and photographs. How we see light, colorblindness, and sight defects of the human eye are followed by interesting explanations of fiber optics, scanners, and holograms. A short introduction explains what the reader will learn and tells about the blue feature boxes that appear throughout the book. These are "Did You Know?" facts, "Investigate" experiments, "Test Yourself" questions, and "Time Travel" discoveries. Answers to the "Test Yourself" and "Investigate" features, an index, and a glossary are included at the end. The photos, charts, timelines, and other illustrations help make the concepts in this text in the "Fundamental Physics Series" easy to understand. Words that are highlighted in bold print throughout the text are found in the glossary. This book provides a good source for the study of these sciences.
