The subtitle of this book is "a book of colors and flowers." which is part of why we liked this one so much. The illustrations are really good--the flowers really look like flowers! Juliet and I do a lot of gardening in our yard, so it was fun for her to recognize some familiar plants and also learn the names of some new ones.
A little bunny hops through a garden and finds all the colors of the rainbow in the flowers he encounters. The last page reads, "In a nest of grasses snuggled warm and tight, Bunny dreams a rainbow dream colors blossom-bright." Two bunnies are sleeping and above their heads is a rainbow of all the flowers from the book--poppies, tiger lilies, primroses, clover, morning glory, violets, and water lilies. Juliet loves pointing to the flowers and saying, "look! a flower rainbow!"
Activity Idea: Go outside to your garden or to a park and find objects from nature that represent a color from the rainbow. You can do flowers, leaves, or even rocks and sticks--use whatever you can find! Bring the objects home and lay them out in the order they appear in a rainbow. (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) Take a picture, print it out, and hang it on your fridge!
