Young children will be enthralled with the bold, brilliant colors in this interesting book about how bulbs and seeds sprout and grow. Beginning readers can easily follow the large print on each  page. The simple illustrations show the stages of growth from taking root underground to fully blooming.

Flowers and plants every color of the rainbow are displayed on their correct rainbow color page.  The next time your child sees an actual rainbow, they'll be naming flowers that coincide with each color! This is a lovely book for young children learning about gardens and colors.
