My Review:

Written in brisk rhymes and illustrated in vibrant hues, Coloring the Rainbow tells a timeless tale demonstrating the magic of music, the beauty of diversity, and the exhilaration of collaboration. It follows a young boy's eye-opening journey of discovery as he ventures outside his home playing his trombone and inspires more and more children to join his search for different musical voices with their own instruments. Together, they bring about a surprising and striking spectacle!

Brilliantly using musical instruments as a metaphor for each person's distinctive features, the story not only introduces young readers to a good variety of musical instruments with colorful images and vivid descriptions of their sounds, but also encourages them to make their own unique voices heard by sharing their gifts and merits with the rest of the world. The exuberant pictures match the main theme perfectly through a thoughtful representation of children from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds and in different physical conditions, and through the adorable addition of animal characters cheering and dancing alongside their human friends.

Celebrating creative collaboration in a colorful, diverse, and harmonious world, this book is sure to delight young readers, especially music and animal lovers, as they learn to accept and appreciate differences, which may bring us together instead of pulling us apart.

Coloring the Rainbow: The Power of Connection tells a story of the magic created when the unique talents of a diverse group of children are shared in a colorful adventure.

The adventure begins when we see through a boy’s window to find a young trombonist pausing his practice to wonder if other musical voices exist. When an alluring treble note wafts through his window, he begins an excited quest to find the answer. Playing his horn through his neighborhood, the boy draws other curious children to play their unique instruments along with him.

Together, they played:
“Lend your voice, play your part!
Something grand is beginning―
join us for the start!”

The procession of music makers is touched with magic when their combined voices, raised in harmony, orchestrate a colorful miracle.

The ease of poetry and vibrant illustrations make this book a perfect keepsake for any gift-giver wishing to explore the values of diversity and inclusion with young, loved ones.
