Take an apple, put it in the pot.
Stir it, stir it, stir it a lot.
Take it out now; what will it be?
The prettiest red you ever did see!

…orange / orange
…banana / yellow
…pear / green
…blueberry / blue
…grape / purple

Rainbow Do-Re-Mi

Red, an apple and a bird.
Orange, a fruit I like to read.
Yellow, bananas and the sun.
Green, the grass beneath my feet.
Blue, the ocean and the sky.
Indigo, the color after blue.
Violet, the berries in a pie.
These are the colors of the rain-rain-rain-rainbow!

Thoughts

I tried doing an excerpt from a picture book for the first time, to little success. I will probably not be trying it again!
