Magical Experiments with Light & Color

About the Book
Fascinating scientific concepts are simplified and explored in ways that kids will enjoy in the Magic Science series. Each book presents 16 simple experiments that can be performed with common objects found around the house. Magical Experiments with Light and Color explores the nature of light through refraction, optical illusion, and more. Each experiment includes illustrated, step-by-step instructions and a simple scientific explanation of what is happening during the experiment. Full-color illustrations on each page.

My Take on the Book
This book is on in a series of four written for children ages 6 - 12. There are 16 experiments in this book which will assist your child in learning concepts associated with light and color. 

I felt this book was well written. All the experiments use materials that can usually be found around your home. The step-by-step instructions were written clearly and in language children would easily comprehend. There was an additional explanation on each page " why the experiment worked", which should help with the analysis and conclusions.
Older children could probably perform these experiments independently. However younger children would benefit from adult supervision.
