Packed with beautiful and engaging photos, kids will learn all about this fascinating scientist. 

The level 3 text provides accessible, yet wide-ranging, information for independent readers.

About the Author:

Libby Romero was a journalist and a teacher before becoming an author. She has written teacher's guides, interactive whiteboards, and a variety of other materials for publishers such as National Geographic's Explorer magazine and the Smithsonian Institution's Tween Tribune. Romero is the author of dozens of books, including the National Geographic Reader biography Ibn al-Haytham: The Man Who Discovered How We See.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–4—This slim volume acquaints beginning readers with the life and times of Ibn al-Haytham (also known as Alhazen), an Arab scholar who was a key figure in the history and study of optics. Arranged in 10 short chapters, the book introduces readers to the golden age of Muslim civilization and al-Haytham's turbulent life and optical discoveries. Students will learn how he feigned madness to escape a bad-tempered caliph; spent 10 years under house arrest; made discoveries about light; invented an early version of the camera obscura; and developed the first example of the scientific method in The Book of Optics. Colorful images appear on every page: a mix of period paintings and drawings and modern-day photographs. "In His Words" and "That's a Fact" boxes are included throughout to reinforce main ideas. Definitions for new vocabulary words are highlighted in a "Words To Know" box. These same terms are also included in a picture glossary at the end of the narrative. A brief multiple-choice quiz will test readers' knowledge. Because this title is a part of the National Geographic Kids Super Reader program, children are offered the opportunity to go online to a dedicated website to earn rewards, play games, and more. VERDICT An accessible overview of a not often covered scholar; a useful addition for science collections.—Maren Ostergard, King County Library System, Issaquah, WA
