    If you have read A Drop of Water and wished for books like it from Walter Wick, your wait is over With the same painstaking care, he has created an excellent book that explains light Everything from energy, incandescence, waves, the color spectrumpractically every topic within the study of light is discussed The explanations are easy to understand and the photographs clearly illustrate the concepts For instance, there is a full page image of a prism splitting white light into the visible spectrum, then a closeup of the spectrum is shown beneath the text A pair of photos show color wheels at rest, and then the same wheels spinning so that all the colors blend together into a dull gray.There are also several pages on how a lens can intensify light, or be used in telescopes and microscopes to magnify the appearance of objects Sunlight, spectroscopic analysis of distant stars, pigments, colors in nature Wick covers so many concepts that it is hard to believe it all fits within so few pages And the back matter explains the experiments shown in the photos in details, as well as how the photos were made.This book is a must for science classrooms and school library collections.I read an ARC provided by the publisher for review purposes.

    Beautiful photographs, but I think it missed its mark for its audience There are a lot of concepts introduced, but no real anchors for young readers to latch onto It felt directed at an adult reader.

    I liked this, even though it made me feel like I m not smart enough to wrap my head around some of the concepts Red and green make yellow Huh I thought yellow was a primary color I had to google this to understand that I ve been wrong about primary colors my whole life This is both a very cool book and a sort of unsatisfying book because it touches on a lot of concepts that make me as a reader beg for further explanation So if you look at this as a jumping off point for further reading and exploration, it s a winner On it s own, it sort of just boggles the mind, though I m sure there are very smart kids out there who already have a strong background in science who will enjoy it.

    Beautiful to behold Experiments in the book help explain the phenomena of light Detailed back matter for the curious.

    I felt like I wasn t smart enough for some of the spreads in this book, and I m not sure if that s true or the text isn t as clear as it should be Some parts were really interesting, though

    A beautiful book featuring vivid photographs and the science behind light

    I liked it Photographs are stunning and compliment text I learned something new But I am not sure my Grades K 5 students will check it out Class read aloud Maybe if used by teacher who can project the photograph and text to science photography class through a projector Reminds me of the books published years ago no captions, fact boxes, headings, charts, diagrams that sit on my shelves full of fascinating facts that kids rarely check out Sigh.

    Copies disappeared with regularity Others were ragged and torn and patched until they had to be replaced repeatedly These books located in the nonfiction section, Dewey number 793.73, were rarely on the shelves except at the beginning and end of the school year Their popularity never ceased.Series like the classic I Spy books, Can You See What I See volumes and the stand alone title, A Drop of Water A Book of Science and Wonder 546.22 have entertained and informed readers for decades A Ray Of Light A Book Of Science And Wonder Scholastic Press, February 26, 2019 written and illustrated by Walter Wick is a breathtaking depiction through photography and text of various aspects of light It s one of those titles where there s much you aren t aware you don t know but are grateful you do now.My full recommendation

    I loved A Drop of Water when I read it a couple of decades ago, and I often found it useful when teaching my students about water This new nonfiction title uses digital photography, clear images, and carefully chosen text to demystify light Along the way, he offers a definition for light and then covers energy, incandescence, light waves, the color spectrum, and iridescence There are several experiments depicted here that help young readers understand these concepts By time readers complete the book, they will have a new appreciation for the importance of light, especially for our own planet Those who are curious to learn even will want to refer to the notes in the back matter I cannot imagine a science teacher or curious youngster who wouldn t be fascinated by this book.

    And yet how little even the wisest among us know about the nature and work of these bright messengers of the sun as they dart across space Arabella B Buckley, 1878.1 Walter Wick, photographer for the I Spy series, talent shines through in this beautiful book about the science of light and its properties of energy, refraction and wavelengths.2 Of particular interest is the explanation of incandescence and the color of light shifting from red to orange to white And that light travels the speed of 186,000 miles per second.3 Light filtering through a prism is like code You can decipher and read it anywhere there s a gap in the spectrum It gives us information on what the sun is made of, what the stars of made of and so much .
