See the light--with experiments that show how it casts shadows, bends, refracts, and lots more. With an outdoor lamp, shine a light on scary Halloween cutouts. Put wax paper over a flashlight to see how it affects the beam's strength. It's a magical trick of the light that makes paper butterflies seem to float. Plus: make a sun print, shadow puppets, silhouettes, a mirrored kaleidoscope, a periscope, and more! The authors lives in West Orange, NJ. 80 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 8 1/2.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-An attractive but imprecise title. Oversimplification and inaccurate ordering of information, as well as some awkward analogies make the volume confusing if not misleading. An introductory double-page spread states that "Grass, trees, and flowers grew in the warm sun. In the oceans, simple life forms began to grow." This is an inaccurate representation of the plant forms in existence during the epochs when simple life forms were developing. Some experiments barely qualify as observations, e.g., standing in the shadow of a large tree and extending one's arms beyond the tree's shadow to create an animated tree. Trevor Day's Light (RSVP, 1998) is a more accurate offering.
