Whenever light shines upon an object, that object has a shadow. If the light changes an angle, the shadow also changes. This book explains how a gigantic shadow is what gives us day and night and the children in the book experiment on how this works by shining a flashlight on a ball in a dark room! This would be an excellent example when teaching the Earth's rotation. The book covers all kinds of shadows from a light source, drawing shadows, playing shadow games, puppet show shadows, eclipses, x-rays, and sonograms. ( )

This was a cute book that talks about shadows and how everything has a shadow. I would use this book to help my students with development skills. The book had a cute way of explaining the concept of shadows and I like the technique it used. ( )
