She is now just over 2 years old and still loves to read it.
KMG
The book is very sturdy and clever, with more ribbons of the rainbow's colors appearing sequentially, at the turn of each page, until the entire rainbow is revealed.
DC World Traveler
The book still captivated young children and I love reading it to them.

I love the idea of this book. Each page features a color of the rainbow (in order- you'd be surprised the books on rainbows that don't teach the colors in order) and at the end a pop up rainbow comes out! My kids loved this! The only itty bitty minor issue I have with it is, that they don't teach indigo and violet (forget ROY G. BIV!) they just call it purple. For the target age group, this is obviously perfectly fine and we still bought the book and love it.

This book really helps my 2 1/2 year old learn the colors. I didn't expect the colored ribbons in each page and my son loves them, it helped with the learning a lot easier & fun!

The book is very sturdy and clever, with more ribbons of the rainbow's colors appearing sequentially, at the turn of each page, until the entire rainbow is revealed. The bunny and prose are very cute too. I was so excited about the book that I researched others in the "Magic Ribbon" series, but the music spinoff appears to have been a flop, as the electronic chip often broke in transit, rendering the concept unworkable. It would be great if this author could conceive of yet another story.

This book is fun and my daughter likes to touch and pull on the ribbons on the pages. The ribbons make up a rainbow and then on the last page there is a pop-up cardboard rainbow. On each page, the story has a young bunny asking other animals what colors makes up a rainbow. So the first page has only one colored ribbon, and then each page adds another ribbon until you get to the last page. There is a slot on the pages for the ribbon to thread through. The illustrations look a little dated, but each animal looks enough like the real animal for my 19-month old to recognize.

The book is interesting but my daughter seems to want to just pull the ribbons, so I have to really protect the book so as to keep the ribbons on the pages. The ribbons also tend to slip over one another so you have to make it "nice" as you get to each page. Lastly, the ribbons tend to stick out of the book when you close it, unless you use your finger to hold them inside. When they stick out, it is very tempting for my daughter to yank on the ribbon.

Overall, I like this book. My daughter has completly ripped apart the Baby Einstein flip-flap book of colors, so with this book, I am making efforts to keep it in one piece. It is on her bookshelf which is accessible to her, so when she takes it out, I read it to her and she turns the pages. It teaches colors and if you point out the things on the page as well as the color of the things, it can be educational.

I got this book for my daughter when she was about 16 months old. I was already teaching her colors, but seeing this book was exciting for her and really progressed her learning. It's very inventive and is super fun to read. She is now just over 2 years old and still loves to read it.

Very cute mini version of the board book. Perfect for little hands. We used these as a favor for infants at a birthday party.

I initially borrowed this book from the library but enjoyed reading it with my toddler so much that I had to add it to our home library. I love how the ribbons show up on each new page and how vibrant the colors are. It's not just a book about colors it tells a simple story that my toddler loves.
