Description

During the golden age of science, knowledge, and invention in Muslim civilization -- also known as the "Dark Ages" in Western Europe -- this incredible scholar discovered how we see and set the stage for the methods we now know as the scientific process. 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. This book is a companion to the international educational campaign, "1001 Inventions and the World of Ibn al-Haytham," that includes interactive exhibits, workshops, live shows, and a 12-minute film starring Omar Sharif in his final film role before his death.

Review quote

"An illuminating introduction to both a significant era in the history of science and one of its brightest stars." -- Kirkus

"This book details the life of one of the most important men of the tenth century, whose name is nevertheless unfamiliar to most young readers... Captions contextualize the colorful images that dot the text; these images include paintings, photographs of artifacts, and maps celebrating the glory of the golden age of Islam. A glossary defines words to know and includes images to explain each term." -- Booklist
