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

This book is fairly simple in terms of literacy, but could be part of a science lesson on plant life. Read full review
