Older students will enjoy this picture book that shows what one curious monk discovered about rainbows. Great for a Middle Ages unit or a science unit on light.

This was more of a series of facts with illustrations than a story or living book. More of a science book than history. Informative but not terribly engaging. ( )

A picture book for older students that informs on the rainbow. In the 1300's there was much superstition about rainbows, but that not did not stop the curious monk who was determined to find out all he could about these colorful images. Although his fellow friars are critical of the time he spends in scientific investigation rather than prayer, Theodoric pursues his reading of the ancient greeks and own experiments on the subject of rainbows. A picture storybook to read aloud to upper elementary especially when a scientific or educational motivation theme is wanted. ( )
