I was able to get a copy of the second book of the Summer Camp Science Mysteries just before printing. A total of four books should be out this coming month for readers and classrooms to enjoy.The second book was just as good as the first. This time the lesson is on light. The experiments include making a periscope out of mirrors and milk cartons.The plot was enjoyable ¿ shiny objects are missing from the cabins, one boy is singled out by the other students. It¿s got more lessons than just light, this would be a good book to look at jumping to conclusions and accusing without evidence.I really hope classrooms all over the place are picking up this series and I still hold to my opinion that it would make a good PBS series.
