When I saw a new one in the series, part of a The World Around Us sub-series, I was delighted to get my hands on an advanced copy for review. We have truly enjoyed these introduction to science topics and I look forward to new titles in the next Memoria Press Curriculum list. Now finally, HarperCollins is releasing new titles in this series. I'm delighted to read Light is All Around Us, a stage 2 book to explore more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades.
I truly enjoyed this book on light and I think it makes a great addition to our shelf. It discusses natural light to man-made light and animal chemical light in between. From light measured in lumens to how our eyes and brains receive and perceive light this little book, in a simple manner, covers a lot of information. Then at the end are a couple of experiments to bring the information to life in example.
