The Kids' Book of KaleidoscopesBook - 1994
Making an adventure out of science--much like The Bones Book & Skeleton--the kids' book of kaleidoscopes turns ordinary kids into masterful kaleidoscope builders. Conceived and written by Carolyn Bennett, kaleidoscope designer and authority, with Jack Romig, this illustrated full-color activity book explains the principles of light refraction and reflection, color bending and bouncing. The kit comes complete with custom components, including three high-quality plastic safety mirrors, tube and turning end, a plastic eyepiece and tube cover, colored gels, and a starter set of plastic beads, gems, chips, and other objects to put on view. It's the basis for everything kids need to make 14 scope projects and do mini-activities such as Topsy-Turvy TV, Hall of Mirrors, and Breaking Out the Colors. Selection of the Children's Book-of-the-Month Club. Suitable for ages 8 and up. 144,000 copies in print.
