Description

Look in a mirror. Who do you see?
Your very own self, that's who!

Now look in a shiny doorknob or in a puddle. Can you see yourself in them?

How about in the pages of this book?

You might not see yourself, but you will feel yourself getting smarter as you begin to understand how and why you can see yourself. Renowned science author Vicki Cobb illuminates the scientific principles of light and reflection in a way that even the youngest kids can understand. Follow this book with a young child who loves to play, and see the light in a whole new way.

Discover science, and the world will never look the same.

Fun hands-on activities and irresistible illustrations by Julia Gorton makethis book a perfect excuse to learn about science...just for the fun of it!
