Synopsis

A Rainbow in My Pocket by Ali Seidabadi

There are so many questions and thoughts that chase through your mind! Why is the sky blue? Why do the ants queue in such a straight line? Why are some words kind and some words harsh?

Reviews

How can you put a rainbow in your pocket? Seemingly the little child in this book has an answer to what sounds like a riddle and it's one she shares with readers in her poetic outpourings - her musings, preoccupations and daydreams. 'Excuse me, /Little ant,/Could you tell me/Which school this is,/Where you queue in such a neat line?

...Those of us who work as teachers of young children are from our observations, well aware of that state of being transfixed by the moment, being in the here and now - the kind of contemplative state that the child in this book appears to be in as she observes that line of tiny ants at her feet. On another day she has this to offer: 'I wish people/Would talk using only nice words - / Poetry,/ Songs,/ Not harsh words/ That prod/ And poke you.

-like quality in tune with the narrative voice. -- Jill Bennet Red Reading Hub

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
