Have you ever wondered just how a glow stick works? Or what about those glow-in-the-dark stars you stick on your ceiling keep on shining? In her first book, author and teacher Anita Sitarski answers these questions and more giving listeners the inside scoop on everything that glows. Fireflies, bacteria, squid, jelly fish-what do all of these things have in common? They glow! It seems like one of mother nature's mysteries, but many curious scientists have begun to shine light on this beautiful phenomenon. Cold Light follows the journey these scientists have taken and tells us how things glow. Narrator Jessica Almasy's sparkling narration draws listeners even further into this enchanting subject. "A deeper look at a topic that has fascinated every firefly-hunting youngster."-School Library Journal ". a first purchase for school and public libraries supporting science-fair participants."-Kirkus Reviews

display_description From an Italian alchemist seeking to create gold from some strange stones to modern-day scientists cloning the genes that produce luciferin and luciferase, and the engineers trying to develop cheaper, whiter, more efficient LEDs, the text lays out the historical hows and whys of cold light, its success in the natural world, and its application in medicine and domestic/industrial illumination. Clear color photos and information boxes abound. A nifty list of further reading and a nice selection of Web sites are also provided. For kids who have been intrigued by such titles as Kris Hirschmann's Creatures That Glow (Gale, 2005) or Mary Batten's The Winking, Blinking Sea (Millbrook, 2000), this is a deeper look at a topic that has fascinated every firefly-hunting youngster out in the yard with a jam jar on a warm summer night.
