A Few Reviews:
“The stylized representations of flower species are labeled throughout, allowing young children to get an idea of how each flower type contributes to the rainbow effect.”–Booklist
“A splendid beginning book of colors and flowers cleverly arranged for young readers.”–The Horn Book
“Young readers will love watching the garden grow.”–San Francisco Chronicle
“A dazzling celebration . . . of the garden, the power of shape and color, and the harmony of text and image.”–School Library Journal
“This book is a favorite in our house. The colors are bright and vivid, my one year old loves turning through this one on her own. We will read this a lot over the winter to prepare for next years garden! While abstract, this book really fits in with our Montessori based home environment.”
“I absolutely adore this book … and you know what, my 3-year-old who “reads” much more complex books, loves it too. He seems to understand that plants grow from seeds now and we are looking forward to planting our own in the coming weeks. I was already a big fan of the “Edible Alphabet” (the very first book I had bought for my son), and I love the simple narrative that “Planting a Rainbow” has: plant a seed, take care of it, be patient, and you will be rewarded.”
