Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-5. From the publisher's Science Projects series, these books present their subjects through brief explanatory discussions and simple activities. Each spread introduces a new topic and up to three projects, cheerfully illustrated with photos of children carrying out the activities as well as diagrams of what's happening and sometimes other photos related to the subject. Light looks into the nature of light, vision, shadows, photography, reflections, refraction, and colors. Magnetism encourages children to learn about magnets by experimenting with simple magnets and exploring their uses in toys, motors, and recording devices such as tapes and computer discs. Elementary school students looking for simple experiments will find the books useful. Check the Series Roundup in this issue for books on electricity, forces (and motion), sound, and energy. --Carolyn Phelan
