The Lovereading4Kids comment

Structured in the same way as all the other titles with black words for the adults to read and coloured words for the children to read, this is another example of the wonderful Ant and Bee approach to learning. This time the subject is colours. Ant and Bee see a rainbow and they decide to make their own pretend rainbow. Using red, yellow and blue they make a simple rainbow and then cleverly mix up the other colours to add green, purple and brown to other things they want to paint. A book to read again and again. Young listeners will love adding the bits they can shout out.


Ant and Bee and the Rainbow by Angela Banner

The Ant and Bee books are cleverly written to introduce letters and simple words to young children through shared reading with an adult or older child. Ant and Bee and the Rainbow is a happy, never-ending story about paint and colour. You can join Ant and Bee as they paint their make-believe rainbow over and over again in this basic introduction to the concept of colour.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
