Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Friends can be different from us in many ways. They can dress differently, look differently, have different kinds of families, or even speak differently. Friends enrich our lives by being a reflection of the world we live in. The rich illustrations of children in this book will be appealing to the young readers. Adults will be pleased to see children of all abilities and cultures included in the illustrations. This is an excellent addition to the early childhood classroom and is written for sharing aloud. Daycare workers and ecumenical childcare workers will want to add this to their collection. A "Lifelong Values for Kids" book.

This book is powerful because of its simplicity. I can not give this book enough praise! Since our family discovered this gem a few years ago, P.K. Hallinan (who does his own illustrations) has become one of our favorites. The subtitle on earlier editions was ¿A Book to Celebrate Diversity¿. Hallinan subtly covers many aspects of diversity through his rhyming words and colorful illustrations. This book is not preachy nor is it cheesy. I like that the book does not just focus on ethnicity, disability and differences. A Rainbow of Friends touches on views, interests, dress, strengths and weaknesses it emphasizes acceptance, understanding, friendship and working together! A great book for all ages! Our family has donated copies of this book to the school library, given copies to each student in my son¿s class at school and distributed the book at community events. Heartprints is Hallinan¿s best known book I think A Rainbow of Friends is one of his best. I would also recommend How Do I Love You?.
