Time for shadow play! After reading about how light and objects interact to create shadows, young children won’t be able to resist twisting, wiggling, bending, and shaking to see the phenomenon for themselves. To add to the enjoyment, Dark as a Shadow
is written in lively rhymes, making it even more fun to learn the science behind why shadows change length through the day and disappear in the dark.
