Description

In English and Mandarin Chinese, Belle Yang's bilingual board books celebrate the natural world with simple concepts and beautiful, bold illustrations.

It's summer, and the meadow is in full bloom. As some bunnies hop along, they see blue sky, white clouds, and yummy green grass. How many more colors can be found? Look for an explanation of tonal marks at the end of the story, along with pinyin translation of the Chinese characters.

Praise For Summertime Rainbow

A delectable ode to springtime... Happiest may be the child readers themselves who will relish the delicate gouache illustrations and the sensorial lushness of spring.
