Recommended by Catherine Jones, our Creative Learning Manager:
We’ve all had to deal with some big changes this year, and none of us more than the children in our lives. The World Made a Rainbow by Michelle Robinson and beautifully illustrated by Emily Hamilton deals with this wonderfully.
The book shares the simple story of young girl at home with her family, trying to paint a rainbow to decorate her window. She zooms with her friend, misses her school and her Granny, and looks forward to a time when they can all be together again. As a mum to a toddler myself the refrain of “this rainstorm will pass” brings a lump to my throat, remembering just how much we have all been through, and making me appreciate the contact we can now have with family and friends all the more!
The World Made a Rainbow would make a wonderful gift for the little people in your life who you’ve perhaps missed this last year.
