Format: Paperback
Finally! We are finding more non-fiction science books for young children. This book along with the others in the series (Amazing Science) by this author are well done. The illustrations are clean and simple. The text is appropriate for the younger child interested in science. This book is an excellent addition to a classroom library for preschool through 2nd grade.

There aren't a lot of words-- the text is essentially a lovely, lyrical poem - but the impact of those words is quite powerful. I think the author has done a nice job of translating the healer's journey of learning to see the world through the eyes of love, without preaching. And the whimsical illustrations by Brian Dorr make Rainbow of Light a real visual treat and great fun.

The physical book has a nice tactile feel--and Dorr's illustrations may just inspire kids to get out their colored pencils and crayons and fill up the blank pages at the back of the book with their own rainbow seeking characters.

The other three books available so far - We Play Beautiful Music, Blessing the Water and We Are Like the Sky-- follow the same physical format, but each is illustrated by a different .
