There’s a Rainbow in My Pocket by Lyn Kulow is a magical story where readers get to see a little girl’s imagination enable her to do wonderful things with the rainbow. The little girl sees a rainbow hanging in the sky and she takes it down, and wraps it around her middle finger. She makes it into an umbrella, swings on the rainbow, and slides down it. She uses it as a picnic rug, a towel to wipe dry after her bath, and as a pillow. When she does not use it, she folds it and keeps it in her pocket. The story is imaginative and creative and asks what would you do if you got a rainbow one day?
The book is an enjoyable read and it will make children imagine, dream, and come up with aesthetic ideas. The illustrations make the story enchanting and endearing, and children will want to have a rainbow like the little girl and do interesting things with it. The pictures also add to the brightness of the book and make it appealing. Children get to understand and feel the author’s expressions vividly through the illustrations. It is a beautiful storybook that can be used in classrooms for interactive sessions, and gives an opportunity to children to let go of their inhibitions and bring out their imaginations and ideas. Parents can use it as a bedtime storybook too. I enjoyed the story and children will love it. The author brings out magic and whimsy through the imagination of the little girl.
