Planting a Rainbow, is about a mom and her child bonding over gardening. They plant the rainbow every year, and reap the benefits all year long. I loved the theme of the parental bonding, however the sentences were split up over the pages and all the flowers were labeled which seems like it would make it harder for a little one to read. Overall it was adorable, and if you're not reading aloud, it shouldn't be a problem! ( )
