Summary
"In this engaging title, young 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. These properties are illustrated by the mixing of paints and pixels. 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!"--Publisher's website
