Publisher's Description

WE ARE A RAINBOW helps young readers begin building the cultural bridges of common human understanding through simple comparisons of culture from breakfast foods to legends. Colorful cut-paper art and gentle language deliver this universal message eloquently. This bilingual Spanish/English version invites young readers to experience language and culture in a whole new way.

Colorful, sweet, fascinating, and fun, the world and its people become closer and we learn that everyone can be a friend. We have so much more in common than what is different about us. And, the world offers so many interesting, fun, and delicious ways to get to know one another. It's easy to appreciate the beauty of world cultures when we understand them more.

Nancy is a bilingual teacher in Sonoma, California. She often speaks at schools, libraries, and conferences to emphasize the need for language-rich books in Spanish.

Editorial Reviews

Using very simple cut-paper art, the author-illustrator explores what can happen when someone goes from one country to another. There a re new faces and places and sometimes the climate, plants, customs, food, and people's skin color can be different, too. When our words differ and we cannot understand one another, people sometimes feel bad, fight, and hurt one another. The author urges the listener to stop and think, "Are we really as different as we think?" With the simple analogy of the benefit the sun and the rain bring to flowers, she suggests that we use our tears and smiles to help friendship grow because friendships, like rainbows, are for everyone. A very simply written and effective book to help young children understand and accept their cultural differences. Would be wonderful to initiate discussions in primary classes in every elementary school.
