The Hidden Rainbow by Christine Matheson

Uncover the rainbow of colors hidden in a garden, which helps flowers bloom and bees find food.

What is StoryWalk®?


Go on Color Hunt

There are lots of vibrant and beautiful colors to spy in nature.  What colors do you see as you walk today? Can you find all the colors in the rainbow? Do you see any bees?

Fingerplay: Here Is the Beehive

Here is the Beehive
Here is the Beehive   (make a fist and cover your fist with the other hand)
Where are the bees?  (shrug your shoulders)
Hidden away, where nobody sees  (shake your head)
Soon they come creeping out of the hive
One, two, three, four, five     (lift one finger at each number)
Bzzzzzzz! (give your child a tickle)
