Children's LiteratureWhat is light? Where does it come from? How does it help us? This science book is filled with several fun experiments for children so they can understand light. The concept is explained in terms they can understand and relate to, and is augmented by pictures that help the description. After explaining in scientific terms that light is a form of energy, this book demonstrates various principles of light through pictures, and experiments. These experiments can be done at home or at school with a flashlight and a couple of household items. They teach principles such as particles, refraction, colors, and heat. The words explain how to do the experiment, but the photographs aid in the explanation. The back of the book contains a bibliography, websites, questions for a parent to ask, and a glossary with words such as refraction, translucent, absorbs, and opaque. This title will help children conceptualize the principle of light. 2005, Lerner Publications Company, Ages 8 to 12.
