Each letter in the word 'rainbow' is a different color. In the fall we buy some bulbs and plant them in the ground. This book is a good book if you want to teach a child about plant names. Although the text is extremely simple, We have some red flowers, and orange flowers , the names of all the flowers are listed on the flower, or on the Popsicle stick that marks each plot in every single picture.
So you have terms like zinnia, tiger lily, and delphinium litte Every year Mom and I plant a rainbow. So you have terms like zinnia, tiger lily, and delphinium littering the pages.
If you want your child to go around being able to identify flowers like phlox and bearded iris, this is a good start. The next step, and really the most important step, is to walk with your child around the neighborhood and point out and identify the flowers and plants and trees yourself.
LOL So this requires a little studying and knowledge on your part. My grandfather and grandmother were nature experts, and I cherished walks with them on which they could magically it seemed to me identify every single flower and tree and bush we came across. My grandmother could also identify any bird song or bird call. She was an amazing woman. They taught me a lot. If you want your child to have this kind of childhood, you yourself have to know nature - or have parents or in-laws who know nature.
It's definitely fun and beneficial for kids. Kids love nature. Which doesn't necessarily mean kids love gardening. After all, that's more 'work. I recommend only doing what they are interested in as far as gardening goes, and if they lose interest, let it go instead of pushing it. See Growing Vegetable Soup by the same author. In this book, the genderless child never pictured and mother never pictured love gardening together and plant a variety of colorful plants every year together.
If you are familiar with Ehlert, you'll know that her pictures are fun and colorful. Another fun inclusion in this book is her color section. She styles this after The Very Hungry Caterpillar , the pages are cut - first very short, and then longer and longer - and form a rainbow when shut. As you unfold each page, there gets to be more and more surface area with each color. So the red pages are the shortest, and the purple pages are longest. Children find this fun and inventive.
I like it, as well.
Children's authors should feel free to be fun and creative. Tl;dr - A fun, colorful, bright book about flower identification. A welcome addition to any library. Ages View all 11 comments.

Nursery can use this to be introduced to colours. Reception children will develop their KUW of how plants grow.
We could bring in some real plants and flowers for the children. This should also help children care for the environment and respect all living things.

A simple story about planting a garden doubles as a concept book to teach colors. The names of all the flowers are labelled as well. Bright, boldly colored paper-cut illustrations and sparse, large print will appeal to the youngest picture book audience. I especially like the staggered-length array of rainbow pages that feature the types of flowers found in the garden, according to color.

The imagery in the picture book is awesome and engaging. Vibrant colors are definitely a good tool in this book, all of the flowers share colors and some are just single colors, as showcased by the child explanting how he creates a garden every year.

Ask the students to create a list of the flowers and their colors ver the weekend. It is a great home exercise and a good way to help get parents involved with your class. Sep 24, Kelli Bratten rated it really liked it Shelves: illustrations , science-literature , ece Louis Ehlert books are wonderful for the colorful illustrations and introduction of new words.
Many of the plants will be new to the kids and will present new vocabulary. I would use this book for a kindergarten or first grade, possibly second grade classroom, since there are less words throughout the book. This book could be used on a unit in teaching living v. As a class we would plant our own plants to ingrain the steps in the book and other books we would have read.
Since many of Louis Ehlert books are wonderful for the colorful illustrations and introduction of new words.

Bright colorful pictures, all about planting colorful flowers so you have a rainbow garden, this book is a solid level 1 reading book, as long as you don't count the names of the flowers.
A great book to expand your vocabulary for flowers, although, even I had a difficult time remembering how to pronounce some of the names of the flowers.
