Overview

When you run, your shadow runs. But you can never catch it!

What makes a shadow? Where does it come from? When the sun is shining, everything has its own shadow — trees, houses, cars, even clouds and planes way up in the sky. You have a shadow, too. As the sun sets, all shadows become part of a much larger one — the night!

With simple words and charming illustrations, Clyde Robert Bulla and June Otani explain how shadows are produced. Young readers will discover what makes the shadows they see and will be introduced to the fun of making shadows of their own.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Children who are learning to read can learn about their world with the "Lets-Read-And-Find-Out Science" series. The series is well conceived such that the developmental reading and interest level are matched. Many outstanding nonfiction writers and illustrators are contributing to the series. For ages three to six there's Stage 1 books which include Bulla's What Makes a Shadow? This revised edition contains updated illustrations, but the text itself, which explains clearly what shadows are and how they are formed, has stood the test of time. Also available in audio format.
Carolyn Phelan
With few changes to the text, this edition of a Let's-Read-and-Find-Out book features new, full-color illustrations. Simple and appealing, the ink-and-watercolor artwork shows children exploring what shadows are and how they are formed, from hand shadows on the wall to the shadow that is night. Since the shadow theme lends itself to many preschool activities and books, this title is recommended for collections serving young children, their parents, and their teachers.
