Publisher's Summary

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.
