Where Does a Rainbow Grow by Kathryn Kemp Guylay Review
Sequel to the Mom's Choice Awards® Recipient, Parent Tested, Parent Approved Award Winner, Family's Choice Awards Winner "Give It a Go, Eat a Rainbow". Where Does a Rainbow Grow? Is for parents and teachers wanting to continue the journey to encourage children to eat more veggies and fruits. The book introduces a new character in the series, Sammy the Bunny, who takes Blake on a journey to discover where healthy rainbow foods come from.
Where Does a Rainbow Grow? supports healthy eating in a fun, educational and positive way. The book uses charming illustrations by 13-year old Alexander Guylay combined with real-life photography and simple rhymes by nutrition educator Kathryn Kemp Guylay to create an augmented reality that immediately draws kids into the story. Peer-to-peer messaging continues as Blake, the main character, feels lost and unhappy in a "colorful" word of unhealthy foods. Blake meets Sammy the Bunny, who takes Blake on a journey to fill Blake's rainbow basket with healthy rainbow foods.
The book addresses healthy eating, farm-to-table concepts and plant identification (specifically fruits and veggies), in an engaging and positive way. Targeting early childhood and elementary school age groups, this picture book is simple yet profound in promoting healthy eating habits in children. Each page is created for maximum engagement, using a delightful combination of photography, illustration, color and text.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- Made for little kids, this book is colorful and easy for them to understand. Each page has a bit of information that will help your little one make better choices when eating.
