Review: Planting a Rainbow

User Review  - Kiera Turner - Goodreads

I love this book! I love the illustrations and the beautiful colorful flowers. I used this book during the theme growing and changing but more for the science part when the children were able to plant their own flower. I also loved the academic language in the book such as bulb, seed and seedlings. Read full review
