Author(s): Dee White; Tracie Grimwood (Illustrator)
In this story, Reena is deaf, and Dog is homeless, but they are also so much more than that. At first Reena and Dog feel like they don't belong, but when they form a unique bond of friendship with the children in the park, they discover that everyone is different in their own special ways.
Reena's Rainbow is about friendship, diversity, and acceptance. It sends the message that true friends will always accept your differences and love you just the way you are.
"Reena's emotions are gently portrayed, and the illustrations softly match the tone of the storyline, doing a particularly good job at developing the relationship between Dog and Reena." * Reena's Rainbow * "... a terrific book ... a sweet story that illustrates the need for acceptance and working together." -- Jeff Barger * Reena's Rainbow *
