The book begins by taking a look at the history of this device. Ptolemy had a sense of what might be; David Brewster, in the 1780s, made it real. Then, a brief discussion of kaleidoscope assembly. By the end of the introduction, one has a sense of how and why a kaleidoscope works.
The next section is called "Scope Science" and discusses the role of light, color, and symmetry. The final section, Scope Art, is apt to be the focus for kids and adults. This is the "how to do it" segment of the book. A series of projects is outlined.
Simply, this will be a lot of fun for kids (and even adults) who like kaleidoscopes. Lots of fun!
