About the Book and Author
This is described as a ‘vibrant’ story and it certainly is! It is also joyful, fun, educational and empowering. The book is about a child who is creative, curious, determined and imaginative and independent. It strikes me that these are all admirable qualities that make Freya (the central character) a super role model for young readers. Especially as they read about how she overcomes her initial disappointment about the failed first attempt to make a rainbow and comes up with another idea to capture a rainbow.
As you can see from our kid’s review below this is a book (taking both the story and illustrations) that young children will find extremely engaging. As well as entertaining the story will introduce new vocabulary, cement their understanding of colours and inspire their own creative activities.
Congratulations to the author, Naomi Jones and illustrator, Ana Gomez for creating such a positive story that contains a little bit of magic too (or should I say science?!)
I did not know how she could make a rainbow with the things she collected
Dylan loves a rainbow and so he was super excited about diving into this book.
He also absolutely loved that there was an activity pack which included a colouring sheet and stickers.
Whilst reading the book Dylan wondered how a rainbow was made with the things Freya was collecting.
The pictures in the book are labelled with the bits Freya seeks to make a rainbow and so he learned the names of certain things that he hadn’t come across yet such as Rose Hips.
He was engaging very well with the book as he was able to point out and tell me the names of things he did know already such as Sunflower and colours and more.
The pages are beautifully illustrated and bold which kept Dylan’s attention as we looked at the book together.
