When a little girl wonders how rainbows are made – asking if they’re painted – it’s up to Grandad to show her that they aren’t painted at all, but made with hope and kindness. As we go through the book, it shows something different for each colour of the rainbow that might give you hope, joy, love or kindness in your life. From family, to picking peas there are lots of different, wonderful things mentioned.
Written in rhyme, this is a really brilliant look at how to find things to be grateful for in your life. I especially enjoyed that most of the happiness activities mentioned could all still be found in lockdown – maybe children will like to try some after reading the book!
It’s important now more than ever to show children how to feel hopeful; I loved the way this book promoted feeling while you read it. The illustrations really bring it all to life, too, as well as the use of colour emphasising the physical rainbow as well as the metaphorical one
For the book tour, we are each sharing something we love or brings us hope too!
My colour is RED and how could I pick anything else, than the Welsh Rugby Team?! Wearing my RED team shirt when they play is something that always brings me hope. Hope that maybe we will win the game, or even the Grand Slam!
Why not make your own rainbow, thinking about the different things that make your life full of colour? There’s a fantastic activity sheet at the end of the book which can help you do this by drawing your own pictures! 🌈
