A Rainbow of Fun


The other day I read a blog post from Preschool Book Club inspired by the book A Rainbow of My Own, by Don Freeman. This got me to thinking about having a rainbow day at home with my daughter. So I did some searching and came up with some activities that we can do some special day in the near future.

  • A Rainbow of My Own by Don Freeman
