Booklist Review: "After a brief introduction about safety, adult assistance, and materials, this entry in the Amazing Science Experiments series offers a range of experiments dealing with light. The projects vary from very easy, such as producing a rainbow with a garden hose, to much more complicated, like a camera obscura constructed from cardboard boxes, a mirror, a lens made from cheap reading glasses, and a piece of tracing paper. Inset boxes offer insight into the science behind each project and the effect readers might observe, and although the directions occasionally lack specificity (which side of the reading-glasses lens goes up?), the detailed diagrams in the illustrations make measurements and construction tips quite clear. Kids who learn best with hands-on science demonstrations will get a kick out of this slim, engaging volume.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2017 Booklist"
