In this engaging title, readers learn how visible light is the key to color. Discover how light begins with the sun and travels to Earth on electromagnetic waves, how white light actually holds the whole color spectrum, and how the eye perceives color. Colorful infographics make the electromagnetic spectrum, wavelength, and eye anatomy easily accessible, and prominent contributors such as Sir Isaac Newton and Russell Kirsch are featured. A fun experiment with light and water brings the science of color to life. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards.
