The article presents information related to several science publications and online resources on the science of light and color. These resources present the science accurately at an age-appropriate level. The book "All the Colors of the Rainbow," presents simple text about how rainbows are formed. The book "The Rainbow and You" put forth the scientific explanations of rainbow formation. The online resource "What Are Those Squiggly Lines? Using Light to Learn About the Universe" explains the concept of light as energy and the electromagnetic spectrum.
