A strikingly-designed early learning picture book introducing colours 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 colours and a charming read-aloud children’s book for ages 0 – 2 and up. Stick with the snail as they journey through colourful surroundings, from black to the boldest colours 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 colours could there be?

The Rainbow Snail’s educational appeal for young readers to follow along a brave little creature’s exciting adventure, while learning the colours of the rainbow, will make this a popular picture book with educators, librarians, and parents. It makes a lovely newborn gift to help build a collection of baby books for the expecting parents nursery library. As with all of Boxer Books’ titles, this baby book has an inventive, while classic and enjoyable theme that children and adults can enjoy together.
