The Lovereading4Kids comment
A delightful picture story book in which a rainbow causes untold damage to the rainforest because of his greed for colour, but eventually the animals of the forest persuade him to mend his ways, but perhaps not exactly as was planned. The pleasure of sharing, so important to instill in a young child, is brilliantly portrayed in this story both through the words and the pictures.

Storytime: The Greedy Rainbow by Susan Chandler
When one little rainbow lands in the rainforest, it causes BIG trouble! Monkey finds the rainbow in a tree and decides to show it to his friends. But as he swings through the forest something strange starts to happen...the rainforest is losing its colours, while the rainbow is growing bigger and bigger! Before long, the rainbow is huge, but the jungle is grey and the animals are very sad. Monkey tells the rainbow off for being greedy and eating all the colours. The rainbow starts to cry, soaking the forest with multicoloured tears. Everything and everyone gets their colours back. Just not their original colours...
QED's Storytime series is going from strength to strength and has recently had several titles read on CBeebies Bedtime Stories. These charming books combine colourful illustrations with heartwarming narrative, each with its own unique message for young children.
One greedy little rainbow causes lots of trouble in the forest when he takes all the colours from the animals and plants - and grows bigger and bigger; and the rainforest becomes grey. All the animals very very sad and the rainbow felt sad too; so sad that he cried great big colourful tears... with very amusing results! A delightful story. As with all QED's Storytime books, there is a 'Next Steps section, full of ideas for teachers and parents to use alongside the book. Parents in Touch
