Horn Book
In a minimal text illustrated with simple cut-paper collage, the young narrator talks about feeling like an outsider after moving to the United States from a Spanish-speaking country. The text lacks specificity and relies on vague philosophizing: 'When we do not understand each other, we feel bad.' The well-intentioned book is too simplistic to succeed.

WE ARE A RAINBOW helps young readers begin building the cultural bridges of common human understanding through simple comparisons of culture from breakfast foods to legends. Colorful cut-paper art and gentle language deliver this universal message eloquently. This bilingual Spanish/English version invites young readers to experience language and culture in a whole new way.

Colorful, sweet, fascinating, and fun, the world and its people become closer and we learn that everyone can be a friend. We have so much more in common than what is different about us. And, the world offers so many interesting, fun, and delicious ways to get to know one another. It's easy to appreciate the beauty of world cultures when we understand them more.
