    If it's Pink, it calls "Love."
    If it's Blue, it calls "Sea." or "Ocean."
    If it's white, it calls "saint."

    Sorry, that is a stupid question, it's lake asking why, oranges are, well, orange...  If you're enquiring after the science, do your own research and look it up instead of wasting space on the questions section.

    Because it contain Chlorophyll which is green. This substance help plants create food from sunlight. It also help absorb carbon dioxide. This also prevent global warming.

    Haha...Aww Mick you are no fun. Is that what you would say to a child who asks that. It's a genuine question to which I don't know the answer to. Sorry that you think it is a waste of space.

    Thesource: Thank you very much, I don't know how I am going to explain that to my niece but I shall find a very creative way of saying it without making it untrue!

    Kesinee: Thank you for that information much appreciated

    Sunlight gives off UV rays, which plants absorb to turn into energy. This energy is called ATP. In order for photosynthesis to occur, ATP must be present. Because light comprises of all the colors of the Visible Light Spectrum, or Rainbow, all colors EXCEPT green are absorbed into the chlorophyll. Green is the color reflected and transmitted back, and that is why we see green in plants. (There's a whole lot more, but that's the basics).

    No question is stupid, in my humble opinion.  I knew you knew that the scientific info could easily been attained from the internet, so I surmised you were asking for either a poetic or age appropriate description for a young child.or a children's book.

    Since you have a good synopis above on the scientific explanation, you could make it even simpler for a little one by stating that the sun works with lifeforces within plants that creates the color that nature intends. Just like the human race all shares some basic traits, genetics combine with the sunshine, good food and exercise to make each of us who we are destined to be.  We need the basics to arrive at our full potential, whether we are destined to be tall,or short, fair or dark,  Although there are different types of grasses, it becomes the shade of green it is destined to be only with the basics necessary to make it so.

    Hope I hit on something that helps, pennyofheaven!,
