Adler, David A


Equip the next generation of scientists with the physics facts they need to know from one of the most trusted names in STEM books for children.


David A. Adler's kid-friendly introduction to the physics of light covers the basics of solar energy, the electromagnetic spectrum, photon particles, light scattering, and reflection and refraction. Readers will follow along as two children and a cow in a lab coat learn how light works in realistic and imaginative scenarios.


Anna Raff's bright, humorous illustrations make an intimidating topic accessible and fun. Hands-on activities demonstrate how light travels and how to bend light yourself, whether at home or in the classroom.


Named a finalist for the AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books in the Children's category. A must-have book for all self-professed science nerds!
