Nothing is more beautiful than a rainbow arching across the sky. Through a series of chapters that provide children with necessary background information, this book gradually and satisfyingly explains how we see colors and how light reflects and refracts inside a raindrop to produce a colorful spectrum.

Research Notes
“I never expected to see a rainbow while I was working on this book, but I did. In fact, it was a double rainbow that stretched across the sky in the late afternoon after a brief rainstorm. What a treat!"
“If you need science material to support a standards-based inquiry science program, look no further. This is an accurate and well-organized series. Questions propel the text in these books. Each title contains an activity for a hands-on science experience that can be done with easily acquired items. The illustrations expand the text and reinforce topics covered. Every title in this series will appeal to the curious child who always asks why and how."
