Description

Light is all around you! It comes in many forms: Light from the sun brightens our day, firelight flickers in the night, electric lights fill our homes--and some animals even make the sea glow!

With lively illustrations and fun diagrams from Paul Meisel, Light Is All Around Us by Wendy Pfeffer is a fascinating look into the many ways that light brightens our world. This is a Stage 2 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.

Let's-Read-And-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
