Thus far, each book has been dedicated to someone special to me. This book, You are a Rainbow, is no exception. There is something unique about it though. In addition to my first children's book, it's also the first one not aimed to ease your hurt, pain, or grief. This is a book full of encouragement. Inspired by a great class of kiddos and a double rainbow one afternoon. Such hope, energy, and life our children have...we need to ignite the goodness and wonder they each contain so they grow to their full potential and blossom into the wonderful creation God intends them to be.
This book is dedicated to this year's kindergarten class, so they were the first to see it. Not only are they the first to see it, they are the first to hear me read it aloud and share the rainbow they each are. Within the book is a place for you to include a picture of your child, grandchild, student, or whoever might need to hear they are a RAINBOW of possibilities.
Do you remember the crayons Mary and I peeled, melted, and reshaped? We made rainbow crayons for each of the kiddos too. This has been so much fun. It has been an exciting journey creating this book and a challenge not to let the secret out. I love sharing the steps along the way but didn't want to chance any of the kids or their families finding out before the big reveal. So hush was the word. To teach is to inspire and be inspired. I hope this book reflects this too.
I plan on sharing more about this book in the days to come. This book isn't only for the elementary school. In the back of the book are ideas for extension activities. As if this isn't enough, I'm working on putting together a resource guide to go along with this book. A reproducible guide to help teachers, youth leaders, or parents simply copy and implement a lesson.
Thanks for sharing in the excitement as I teased along the way. Now I can start sharing some of the fun in creating this book. Stay tuned for more.
I wonder what happens when you click on one of the pictures? Hmm...hint hint....
Are you ready to learn more about my first children's book?
