  1. Heidi Grange

    Stunning illustrations combined with poetic text.
    The glow in the dark cover jumps out at the reader, it’s what caught my attention when I first saw it. Combining stunning paintings with brief text the book makes a great introduction to light for young readers. Each two page spread highlights one kind of light starting with the sun and moving through the aurora borealis, lightning, fire, fireflies, and other natural sources of light concluding with human-made light bulbs and fireworks before returning to the stars. Each spread is described using short descriptions such as “Fire warms” or “Clusterwink snails blink”. The illustrations stand out with the way they seem to jump off the page. The back matter gives additional information about light as well as a bibliography, websites appropriate for kids to explore the topic more, and an index. I thoroughly enjoyed the beauty found in this book and look forward to sharing it with my students. Highly recommended.

    Gorgeous images of all the ways light appears in nature. Our son loves the bioluminescent animals (and of course the glow-in-the-dark cover.) Meanwhile I’m trying to figure out how to hang the art on my wall.
