9780060229160: What Makes a Shadow? (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1)

When you run, your shadow runs. But you can never catch it!

What makes a shadow? Where does it come from? When the sun is shining, everything has its own shadow -- trees, houses, cars, even clouds and planes way up in the sky. You have a shadow, too. As the sun sets, all shadows become part of a much larger one -- the night!

With simple words and charming illustrations, Clyde Robert Bulla and June Otani explain how shadows are produced. Young readers will discover what makes the shadows they see and will be introduced to the fun of making shadows of their own.

About the Author:

Clyde Robert Bulla is the author of over fifty books for children including The Secret Valley and The Story of Valentine’s Day. He has been writing since 1946 when he published his first book, The Donkey Cart. Mr. Bulla was the first recipient of the Southern California Council on Children’s Literature award for distinguished contribution to the field. He lives in Los Angeles, California.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-This simple introduction to shadows is a newly illustrated version of a 1962 title. Each page offers a short description of an object and its shadow ("A house has a shadow. The sun shines on one side of the house. There is a shadow on the other side"). Experiments are suggested to show various sizes and shades, and the concept of night is explained. Unfortunately, the brief, straightforward text is unimaginative. Otani's illustrations are flat and uninspired, depicting children with dot eyes and upturned curves for mouths. This book is not likely to interest young readers, although it is on a topic that usually fascinates them. With its rhyming text and exuberant paintings, Ann Whitford Paul's Shadows Are About (Scholastic, 1992) is a much more effective treatment of the subject.
