A strikingly-designed early learning picture book introducing colors and a fabulous new character—the Rainbow Snail! Karin Åkesson’s beautiful artwork and easy-to-read text combine to create a wonderfully interactive book to teach toddlers colors and a charming read-aloud children’s book for ages 02 and up. Stick with the snail as it journeys through colorful surroundings, from black to the boldest colors of the rainbow!

Blue like the raindrops. Green like the soft grass. Yellow like the warm sun. This is the story of how the rainbow snail came to be. It takes sun and rain to make a rainbow, and what better combination of colors could there be?


The Rainbow Snail has educational appeal, as young readers follow a brave little creature’s exciting adventure while learning the colors of the rainbow, will make this a popular picture book with educators, librarians, and parents.

The connection between each color and the relation of that color to the beauty in the world was amazing to read. The author truly captures it through words and illustrations. This makes a perfect gift for expecting parents as they can read this book to their baby. A great intro to colors. It is never to early to learn! 😉
