A Rainbow In Her Pocket


Rainbow In Her Pocket by Amanda Jayne

Have you ever seen a sheep standing tiptoe on the ears of a very tall giraffe while a crowd looks on and cheers? And have you seen an owl helping them to tug a rainbow from the sky, like a multi-colored rug?

This is the story of Mala the rhino who can’t help feeling blue after her friend moves away. Her friends, an owl, a sheep and a not-so-humble giraffe get together with sun and create a crazumptious plan to show Mala that blue is as beautiful as all the other colors. This colorful story of friendship, love and loss will delight children while encouraging them to embrace their emotions in a healthy way.

My Review

5 Stars

Mala the rhino is blue after her gorilla friend goes away to the zoo. She has become so sad that she has turned blue. When she realizes that she is blue she becomes upset about being blue. She would rather be any other color than blue but just can’t seem to find a way to change color. Her friends, a giraffe, an owl, and a sheep try to find a way to show her that blue is a beautiful color just like any other.

This is a cute story for kids and a great way to show them different emotions. Although you feel sad, it is still an emotion and that you can always change that, maybe with the help of some friends. But it also shows how you may be trying to cheer up a friend but you may have to wait a little bit before they realize it.

This is a wonderful little story that parents and teachers could read to help kids understand having these emotions and how to help others. Plus it is filled with wonderful illustrations that will catch everyone’s eye. This would be a great addition to anyone’s library.
