What is The Rainbow Blots about?

The Rainbow Blots is a beautifully illustrated children’s storybook, written to teach young children the colours of the rainbow, in the correct order.

Win Rainbow Blots book

Children’s books often shy away from teaching real rainbow colours, preferring to go with ‘pink’ and ‘purple.’ When Carlie Wright taught her children the correct colours, she came up with the idea for this charming book. She also composed a new rainbow song to reinforce the learning.

The book begins with Mummy Rainbow lowering down her Blots. The Rainbow Blots introduce themselves to the children and invite them to ‘turn the page and watch them play’. There is a double spread dedicated to each rainbow colour, featuring e.g. Orange Blot playing with a pumpkin, a carrot, a basketball and an orange teddy. The book is highly interactive with lots of opportunities for children to remember and recite the rainbow colours in order.

The Rainbow Blots have ‘a special trick that they can do.’ They can morph into different shapes so there are some fun pages where they have ‘turned into their favourite thing’.

The book teaches the connection between rain and sunshine, so Mummy Rainbow reappears after the Blots notice that ‘the sun is shining but it’s raining at the same time’. After praising her Blots, she lowers down her ladder again for the Blots to return home and go to bed. The last spread shows all the Blots asleep in their beds on Mummy Rainbow.

Carlie Wright’s rainbow song is called ‘Do You Know The Colours Of The Rainbow?’ The simple melody and rhyming phrases are catchy and easy for children to pick up quickly. You can watch an animated video of the song on her YouTube channel, with a keyboard/vocal track and featuring the characters from ‘The Rainbow Blots’.

My favourite printable is the rainbow colouring sheet, which would help my granddaughter remember which colour is on the outer edge and which is on the inner, and all the colours in between.
