Rainbow’s Promise: How It All Started by Mary Clark Dalton is the story of a cute caterpillar who is teased by his classmates because he is the last one in the class who is yet to receive his wings. Rainbow spent a lot of time in his room, feeling sorry for himself. His mother tells him to be patient and she consoles him by saying he will get his wings in time. Rainbow dislikes the word 'patient.' He thinks it is another word for boring. He always dreams of soaring above the clouds with beautiful, strong wings. Will he finally be able to become a butterfly with rainbow colors in his wings? Read the book to find out!

What makes the story special is the message that it conveys to young readers – to be patient, find good in ourselves, and do things only we can do. The illustrations are colorful and bright and they give movement and clarity to the author’s concept and message beautifully. It is an excellent story that can be read aloud in classrooms as it helps children to learn self-acceptance, patience, and to be contented with what they have. It is also good for bedtime story-telling. Books like this with a good message should be introduced to children as it helps them overcome a lot of their personal issues when explained with the help of stories. Rainbow’s Promise is definitely a keeper as it is helpful to parents and teachers when it comes to teaching children life skills.
