Princess Rosie’s Rainbows
Who doesn’t like rainbows? Nobody, that’s who. Everybody likes seeing them in the sky and everybody is disappointed when they go away. But imagine if you were only happy if there was a true rainbow in the sky. You’d be sad all the time. This is how Princess Rosie feels. She sits around all day unhappy. You see, the moment she is born, a rainbow appears in the sky. From then on, that’s all she wants to see. Now for a moment, imagine you are her parents. You’d want your daughter to be happy. That’s what Princess Rosie’s parents want. So the king and queen make an announcement that anyone who can make a rainbow last forever, will win a bag of gold. Nothing they bring in can make the princess happy however. In the end, Princess Rosie finds out that you don’t need a rainbow in the sky to be happy, because when she remembers one, she doesn’t need to see it.
I love, love, love this book, especially the page where people from all over the world are bringing gifts. It has so many different images, but they all have a rainbow theme. Every beautiful illustration is detailed, colorful, and gives you a lot to look at. This book is good for all ages because it has a wonderful tale with illustrations to match. It is also a lovely story with a moral of “be content with what you have.”
In the back, it has a science lesson about how to make your own rainbows.
