Article first published as Book Review: Love is the Color of a Rainbow by Kathy Parra on Blogcritics.
Kathy’s book is printed on eco-friendly paper and has a really nice feel to it, smoother than conventional paper. The illustrations are made by Candace Keach in pastel chalk and bring about a colorful childish feeling.
Reading what nature is like through Willow’s unseeing eyes is a delight. It brings us into contact with the feel of nature, the smells of nature, the emotions they stir up. The book also creates awareness towards disability.
From the book:
She took my hands and put them around her. We hugged each other, and she said, “Together all these colors of nature make a rainbow hugging Mother Earth.”
Willow smiled, “A rainbow feels like love.”
If you are looking for a book that will inspire your child to connect to nature, with a strong message of love and peacefulness, this will be a good pick. Find out more about the book on www.kathyparra.com
