Astrophysicist Contributor to James Webb Space Telescope Reviews Light Speaks

Blake Marie Bullock is an astrophysicist and Vice President at Northrop Grumman who contributed to building NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. Blake read an advanced copy of Light Speaks. Her kind words show that the picture book can play a role in inspiring kids to explore STEM concepts.

“Layton and Powell conjure a beautiful doorway into the world of physics by exploring some of humankind’s most fundamental questions through the eyes of a young reader. As we continue to field more and more powerful telescopes, the astrophysicists and biologists of tomorrow will have access to information and images never before seen. Layton and Powell invite them to ask big questions to explore.”

Review Excerpt

“This sparklingly illustrated picture book consists of spare, poetic verse exploring the properties of light. The gorgeous visuals help shed light on the topic, making rich use of color to convey the idea of a shimmering universe, and the book concludes with two pages of scientific context for some of the more cryptic phrases.”Our Verdict: GET IT
