Who thought shadows could be such fun? They are-with Shadow Play.
This lively science activity book shows you how to turn a cardboard box, a light bulb, and some Plexiglas into a shadow box, and then use the box to create fascinating shadows with everything from pieces of cardboard and wire to three-dimensional objects to clear glass bottles. Once you add a magnifying glass and make a few simple alterations, your shadow box becomes a box camera. By changing light sources and switching lenses, you'll be able to produce all kinds of special picture images. Over fifty imaginative experiments help you explore some of the basic properties of light-and discover how studying shadows led to the invention of the camera.
Shadow Play is the perfect book for learning more about the world, or just having a great time. With it, you'll never look at a shadow in the same way again!

Roy Doty has received many honors for his works. He is the recipient of two art directors' awards and has been voted Cartoonist Illustrator of the Year three times by the National Cartoonists Society. In addition to writing and illustrating his own books for children, he has illustrated more than one hundred books for other authors, including The Invention of Ordinary Things and You Can Speak Up in Class.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-8-With Zubrowski's latest book, children can learn about the basic properties of light and how the study of shadows led to the invention of the camera. The more than 50 experiments are grouped into three general sections: the first shows how shadows are made in natural and artificial light; the second describes how a shadow box is constructed and used in further activities; and the third tells how a box camera is made. The lists of materials needed include suggestions on where to purchase items that are not readily available. The directions, diagrams, and guided interpretations of "What's Happening" are easy to follow. The "Further Explorations" section that follows each experiment suggests related open-ended investigations. Safety notes are highlighted with an icon (a finger with a string tied around it). Shadow Play offers a wealth of interesting, creative projects. Although it would be possible for readers to work through them on their own, adult help will probably be needed, not only to set up and guide the procedures, but also to sustain interest and aid in interpreting results.
