Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
This book presents interesting, basic information that includes the sources of light, how shadows are formed, how light bounces, how light bends, why it gets dark at night, and the colors of light. There are simple experiments such as using a mirror to see how light reflects, and using a ball, a sticker, and a flashlight to understand why it gets dark at night. Directions are given for making a shadow clock out of a few simple materials. Plenty of photographs in color and some cartoon illustrations help clarify the concepts. Words in bold print are defined in the glossary. The text also includes a table of contents, an index, and notes for parents and teachers that have suggestions for further activities. It is one of the series, "Why It Works." Some basic scientific words are used but they are presented in terms that should be easy for young readers to understand and learn. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
