I used this book as the jumping off point for a lesson in a first grade classroom. We started by locating the Emerald Isle (Ireland) on a map and talking about Ireland and common facts. After reading the book, sequencing the story, and then creating rainbows with bowls of water, mirrors and flashliights, the students made rainbow cupcakes to reinforce the ROY G Biv aspect of the rainbow by layering colored cake batter, baking, and frosting with white icing as the clouds. We listened to bagpipes on Youtube and did a shamrock matching math. All based on this charming book!My only complaint about the book is that the color "indigo" looked violet and violet looked pink...I was disappointed that the colors were not more authentic when that was a key component of the story!(I had the students "look for the mistake" in the book.)
I read this book to my kindergarten class for St. Patricks' Day and this is one of my favorite stories to read. Kids are fascinated by rainbows and this provides a magical spin on how rainbows are made. We created a rainbow project to go along with the book! Such fun!
My 6 year old grandson thought this was wonderful. Learning of St Patrick traditions with easy to read prose was a hit in his book! Reading is vastly important and whatever I can find which is entertaining AND thought provoking is a rare find, indeed!
My kids age 3 and 5 love this book. It has become a "regular" at bedtime. The pictures are colorful and cute. The story is sweet. It has a little Irish culture in it. Very nice book to read to your kids.
Quote: "I really like this book but you know how the leprechaun stole the piece of licorice out of her hands? That wasn't very nice. That's why I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars." - my 5-yr-old daughter.
When Roy G Biv needs help building a rainbow, so he can find his lost pot of gold, Colleen reluctantly agrees to help. Colleen gives up many of the things she loves to make a rainbow, that will also stop the rain for the St. Patrick's Day parade, which makes many people happy. A surprise reward then makes Colleen happy!
The book was very very good! Loved the name of the leprechaun. The Children absolutely loved this book. I would recommend it to all.
My 1st graders and I loved the book. We talked about the colors of the rainbow and the items the girl put into the Leprechauns hat.
