“Every year Mom and I plant a rainbow,” begins the unseen narrator, and readers are introduced not only to the rainbow, but to the process of planting and tending a garden and the life cycle of plants. The pictures are clear, with flat, bright colors, and text the text is used not only to tell the story of the garden but to identify plants through out the process. Each bulb is labeled, and then each seedling and plant as they grow. While the illustrations are somewhat stylized, they are clear enough to help children identify plants in their yards and neighborhoods, and watching the rainbow grow will inspire any reader to plant a garden.
