What Makes a Shadow? (Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science 1) Library Binding – January 30, 1994
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2-This simple introduction to shadows is a newly illustrated version of a 1962 title. Each page offers a short description of an object and its shadow ("A house has a shadow. The sun shines on one side of the house. There is a shadow on the other side"). Experiments are suggested to show various sizes and shades, and the concept of night is explained. Unfortunately, the brief, straightforward text is unimaginative. Otani's illustrations are flat and uninspired, depicting children with dot eyes and upturned curves for mouths. This book is not likely to interest young readers, although it is on a topic that usually fascinates them. With its rhyming text and exuberant paintings, Ann Whitford Paul's Shadows Are About (Scholastic, 1992) is a much more effective treatment of the subject.

Ages 3-6. With few changes to the text, this edition of a Let's-Read-and-Find-Out book features new, full-color illustrations. Simple and appealing, the ink-and-watercolor artwork shows children exploring what shadows are and how they are formed, from hand shadows on the wall to the shadow that is night. Since the shadow theme lends itself to many preschool activities and books, this title is recommended for collections serving young children, their parents, and their teachers.

Sometimes you don't expect great illustrations, so when you get them, it's a tremendous bonus. This is one of those times.
The text is good, and the illustrations feature cute kids and their shadows (naturally). We like to take night-time family walks, and this book is dynamite because it has led the kids to notice their shadows from all sorts of light sources. Sometimes, they can spot their own shadow three times from different light sources. This book is dynamite.
