One of my mums friends gave her this book; which she proceded to pass on to me, for my little girl. My daughter was in awe of this book, she thought it was really exciting to look at. She was intrigued by the colourful ribbons that pass through every page of the book, until a colourful rainbow is formed at the end. She enjoyed pulling onto the ribbons that weave through each page, and I am pleased to say, that they did not break or tear the book in any way. The book itself is hardback, and the pages are thick card, so it really is a good quality book in every way. The pages have a laminated feel, so they can easily be wiped down if anything gets spilt on them.
The book is by Betty Ann Schwartz and illustrated by Dona Turner.
The book is entitled "What Makes a Rainbow?" It is about a Little rabbit and his mother that are sitting under a big flower petal whilst it is raining. Suddenly it stops raining, to which little rabbit says "its stopped raining" and mother rabbit says "yes, soon we will see a rainbow" . Little rabbit is perplexed and asks " What makes a rainbow?" Mummy rabbit tells little rabbit to ask his friends. Little rabbit then procedes to ask each of his friends "what makes a rainbow?" and so the story goes. As you turn over each page, a new colour ribbon appears.
It is realy nice little book, and costs £9.99; although I cannot be certain what my mums friend paid for it, she may have got it cheaper than that.
I would definately recommend this book to anyone. It is very hardwearing, colourful and entertaining, and I think it is really worth the price. I would most definately have paid that for it, if I had purchased it myself from a shop.
