Description

Weaving the Rainbow, by George Ella Lyon, is poetry dressed up as narrative nonfiction. Stephanie Anderson's gorgeous watercolors illuminate the intimate transformation of raw fleece into a tapestry. Students of all ages will gain a new appreciation for the art and craft of handmade fiber art after reading this beautiful book.

On the first page, we meet a woman - "the weaver". It's spring, and she's standing by a fenced-in field; 'the weaver sees rainbow sheep grazing in her pasture." What we see are sheep cloaked in woolly white. Last summer, the weaver's lambs won blue ribbons at the state fair. When leaves of gold, brown, and red fell in autumn, they were sheared. They grew a second coat to warm them through the winter.

Anderson's vivid illustrations show us how this white wool becomes multicolored yarn. And we begin to comprehend the title, Weaving the Rainbow. The weaver is planning to weave 'a picture, doing with wool what a painter does with paint." Weavers of all ages will love the detailed two-page spreads that show this short, instructional story.

This story is read online by School Gardens.
