Review by Booklist Review

With lots of full-color photographs and a simple, lively text, this science book in the Kingfisher Young Knowledge series packs the pages with a lot of exciting science information that adults can talk about with young listeners. The focus is on what we see and hear--from sunlight, electricity, and shadows to sound waves and microphones. Large, clear diagrams show the anatomy of the eye and ear, how sound travels, what happens in a solar eclipse, and much more. Craft projects, including shadow puppets and plastic-cup telephones, reinforce the accessible science and technology with hands-on fun. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2007 Booklist

Review by Horn Book Review

Disorganized paragraphs of information share space with well-reproduced photographs in this introduction to the properties of light and sound. The page design is inviting, but the brief text is sometimes confusing, as are some of the definitions at the bottom of the pages (e.g., a telescope is ""a device that makes things look bigger than they really are"").
