I Can Swim A Rainbow

Swim, sing and search through a kaleidoscope of colour and coral as Kim Michelle Toft delivers another stunning picture information book, set on the beautiful but fragile coral reef ecosystem.

Adapted from Arthur Hamilton’s classic rainbow song
I Can Sing A Rainbow , the reader will be both enchanted and challenged to find and identify a myriad of unique ocean inhabitants. Each illustration is a highly detailed hand painted silk.

Extension information in the back of the book looks at camouflage , how rainbows are formed and the colour wheel and its properties.
