Planting a Rainbow

Lois Ehlert, Author, Lois Ehlert, Illustrator Houghton Mifflin Harcourt P $17 (0p) ISBN 978-0-15-262609-9
Every fall ""Mom and I plant a rainbow,'' by carefully placing bulbs in the gardenstiger lilies, yellow daffodils, blue hyacinth and purple iris, among others. And every winter they order seeds from catalogues for zinnias, daisies, marigolds and much more. The bulbs sprout in spring; seedlings are set out. Come summer, it's time to harvest the rainbow-colored crop. Despite a die-cut insert that relates the colors of the spectrum, this new title lacks the fresh approach to the natural cycle of planting, growth and reaping of Ehlert's Growing Vegetable Soup. While still welcome for its bursts of color and well-documented labeling of flowers, this book cannot add to the concept of gardening, precisely because its predecessor was so comprehensive. Ages 3-8. (March)
