Rainbow was born different in a beehive far away. Instead of black and yellow stripes, this bee had stripes of different colors. That is why the Queen Bee decided to name the bee Rainbow. Rainbow not only looked different but liked different things too and when most of the bees liked the sweet nectar from garden flowers, Rainbow preferred the sour nectar from wildflowers. The Queen Bee decided to test Rainbow one day to see how different Rainbow was from the other bees. She checked if Rainbow could fly like the other bees, if Rainbow could pollinate like the other bees, and buzz like the other bees. The hive understood Rainbow could do everything they did despite looking different.
The Rainbow Bee by Ricardo Gattas-Moras and Rob Jackson is a beautiful story of accepting differences and embracing them, and loving everyone no matter what color they are and how different they are. The colorful and bright illustrations make the concept clear to readers and make the book captivating. There are a lot of good messages that make it a must-read and must-have in homes where there are children to help them learn acceptance. Tutors can use the book for read-aloud and storytelling sessions to help their students understand the importance of treating others properly and accepting them for their uniqueness and differences. Books like this form a good source of information when it comes to educating children about the values that need to be practiced in life.
