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 with each other, and become friends with the hearing children in the park, they discover that everyone is different and special in their own way.
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.
KIndergarten to year 3 gave the book 5 stars
The children really enjoyed the story of Reena and her Dog they thought the illustrations were wonderful especially when her happiness bubbled up.
They though it was great that the children took turns in playing and their favourite part was when Reena became part of the rainbow, because everyone loves rainbows.
This is a beautiful book and delicately shows the emotions of Reena. The illustrations and text set a wonderful tone showing the beauty in her strengths and connection with her Dog.
A heartwarming book showing us the importance of friendship and acceptance.
