Planting a Rainbow: 03/05/10
Besides being addicted to all things monster, Sean loves to garden. In the winter when it's too cold to plant flowers he likes to read about flowers. He recently read to me Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert.
Lois Ehlert's bright illustrations made of primary colors and basic shapes go through the rainbow with suggestions of things to plant to get those different colors. Although it's a picture book it does provide the names of the different flowers and plants highlighted. It would make a good reference for any budding gardener.
Ehlert is also the illustrator of the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom series of books by Bill Martin Jr.
