Simple but pefect. ( )

This is a book I would use with kindergarten students when they first plant a seed in science. The book will give them a preview of how plants grow during each season. Students would plant a seed in science and every-other-day they would write a science journal entry on their plants growth progress.

An unnamed narrator and her/his mother plant a garden each year, encompassing every color of the rainbow as they do so.

This book is very basic, with a simple straightforward storyline and pretty but fairly plain illustrations of flowers in every color of the rainbow. A fun extra is the graduated length of pages in the middle of the book each with a different color along the edge, so that a whole rainbow is visible at once.

Despite its simplicity (or perhaps because of it), this book makes for a nice, gentle read with a loved child, serving as a perfect naptime or bedtime selection. ( )
