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

How about in the pages of this book?

Renowned science author Vicki Cobb illuminates the scientific principles of light and reflection in a way that even the youngest kids can understand.

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!
