"Concise stanzas of five or six syllables evoke the wonder, movement, or purpose of different light sources...The illustrations, rich with color and patterns, are their own celebration of light, particularly in their warm, golden glows. The book successfully depicts both scientific and cultural experiences in impressive variety and connections. A ray of light, both illuminating and beautiful."Kirkus Reviews



The soft glow of a candle, the blink of a firefly, a burst of fireworks―light is everywhere in our world! Rhyming text and luminous illustrations follow four children as they experience many different forms of light.
