A Sciencey, Rhymey Guide to Rainbows

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 3
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

This is a book for all the children who love asking “Why?”—and all the parents who struggle to answer!

Her daddy wiped his sweating head, she looked him in the eye. With growing passion in her voice, she asked intently, “Why?”

Dad is quite confident in explaining how a rainbow is made to his curious daughter, but when she keeps repeating “why?” his explanation spirals deep into science-y lingo that has his brow sweating! How far will he have to go until he satisfies her curiosity? A science-y, rhymey guide to rainbows that even those with no scientific knowledge can enjoy. This fun, lively story is written by Dr. Billy Dunne and illustrated in brilliantly bright rainbow colors by Rhys Jefferys.

A great gift for children and parents who are going through the “why” stage. This book presents a fun, tongue-in-cheek way to learn about the science of rainbows! Suitable for children aged 3 – 6 years old.
