A stunning, multi-faceted visual exploration of one of our critical senses—sight! 

With compelling visual sophistication and infographics about all aspects of sight, this volume joins Sound: Shhh … Bang … Pop … Boom! as far more than just a groundbreaking introduction to our vivid, sensory world! At once an immediately accessible, science-intensive illumination of an endlessly fascinating subject as well as a sensitive exploration of how sight essentially impacts our everyday lives.
  • VISUAL EDUCATION: A striking visualization of a complex subject and a compelling, nimble and clarifying look of what otherwise might be only a jumble of abstract information
  • INTRICATE DETAIL/IN-YOUR-FACE KNOWLEDGE: A combination of richly-layered illustrations and carefully crafted text not only provides an immediate wealth of information but rewards rereading and careful attention from sharp eyes.
  • MORE THAN JUST THE FACTS: The authors' wide-ranging intellectual curiosity encourages not only scientific exploration but philosophical reflection on the very nature of sight.
  • SUPPORTS STEM BASED EDUCATION: Oodles of facts in an appealing kid package.
Perfect for:
  • Teachers and librarians
  • Parents and caregivers
  • Anyone curious about the way things work
