". . . a solid source for an introduction to the study of light."

Denton Independent School District, November 4, 2008

"This series is a must-have for every elementary school library."

Denver Public Schools, December 31, 2008

"Clearly written and informative, this will be a useful and intriguing resource that leads budding scientists into further exploration . . . This should be a primary purchase for both elementary and middle school libraries. The experiments can be used both to explain basic theories on light or as a stepping stone for further research."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, September 2008

"These volumes are geared towards upper elementary school students and provide a wonderful, easy-to-understand reference for a teacher's classroom library or a school's library."
