    1. كتاب رائع. كم نحتاج إلى كتب من هذا النوع، تجمع بين المحتوى المنتقى بعناية، والإخراج الجميل، والإتقان.

    2. This is an excellent addition to a superb children's nonfiction series. Ibn al-Haytham, who lived in the 10th and 11th centuries, made important discoveries in the field of optics. He may even have been the first person to use the scientific method.

    3. Ibn al-Haytham: The Man Who Discovered How We See by Libby Romero is a very interesting book about a Muslim scholar who discovered how our eyes work. Ibn al-Haytham didn’t only find out how our eyes worked, but he challenged many other theories. Although I already had a basic knowledge of how we see things prior to reading this book, my mind was opened to how the thoughts and everything were originally conceptualized. I would never of guessed that the same person who discovered how our eyes w [...]

    4. I really found this book fascinating! It covered so many important elements of scientists and scientific study. I did not know how much of an impact al-Haytham made on science with his work in light and optics. His implementation of the scientific method at that junction in history is incredible. I loved the information/text in this book. The illustrations were wonderful and I found it to be very interesting and age appropriate. I also loved the timeline and the quiz at the end of the book. High [...]

    5. I learned quite a bit reading this book. While I was already aware of the basics of how the eyes work. I wasn't aware of Ibn al-Haytham and his work that helped the world learn about vision and light. The book is well done, as are all National Geographic Kids books. And I appreciated the author pointing out the gaps we have in what we know about the man. But there is enough here to be interesting. And it's great that the subject of this biography is a lesser-known individual. I know my library n [...]

    6. As always National Geographic puts out an amazing read for level 3 readers. This book is about the man who discover how we see, Ibn-al-Haytham. There were some very interesting, fun facts that we (my daughter and I) read about. We both learned things about this man, schools, the 96 books written, etc. If you and your child are looking for a quick learner, informative, and neat book of facts, this is the book for you!!!! Thank you for allowing me to read and review this book.

    7. Very nice bio of one of the first important scientists. Lots of his discoveries led to other discoveries, and future scientists fed off of his work. The illustrations are gorgeous, and there is just the right amount of information for a young child. New, challenging words are defined, and much of the science is explained very well.

    8. This was a great book - perfect for the age level. Although, as an adult I was left wondering about the whole pretending-to-be-insane-and-being-locked-up-for-11-years thing.I clearly have some googleing to do

    9. Very interesting look at the man who not only pioneered the field of optics, but also basically fathered the scientific method. Great book, full of illustrations that add to the clarity of the text.

    10. We really loved this book. My dear Children wanted to learn more about Ibn Al Haytham . It is a good book for children but also lovely for an adult !

    11. Interesting look at a scientist I had never heard of. The scientist who discovered how we see and the nature of light.
