    "so mixing the colors became more acceptable than it had been before"

    For whom is this book? It spends most of the time alienating the rainbow boy who is different (even the book won't call him by his name, Huey), with the above partial repentance at the very end.

    In terms of helping people overcome prejudices, this book seems more appropriate for a nursing home than a nursery.

    For a child's book, I found this to be poorly written. I hate to give a poor review to a child's book, but I truly didn't enjoy reading this book, and neither did my daughter who is two. Not that her opinion is creditable, but the pictures weren't grabbing her attention like other children's books do. The story line was a little dull, therefore not grabbing the child's attention either. I think with less words in the story, and a simpler story line, the book might make it a bit more interesting. Of course, I think the pictures remind me of the pictures kindergartners bring home to put on their refrigerator. Were these drawn by an adult or a child? Either way, they could be so much better. Overall I give it a 1.5/5

    Recommended for young children...check it out!

    The Rainbow Stick Boy, was a very easy read with a good message. The book is attractive and bright from start to finish. The simplicity of stick people (which look textured in appearance) engages the imagination for children to understand the story with ease.

    The Rainbow Stick Boy is about having to grow up while clearly being different than all those around him. Despite continuous rejection, he keeps a good heart until an opportunity is presented for him to accidentally show all, that some times being different can be good.

    This book was gifted for an honest review.
