Rainbow stick boy is about a little stick boy made up of different colors when everyone else in his world just has one. This makes him appear a bit odd to the rest of the stick people but it all works out in a colorful happy ending. I read it to my kindergartener and his words were "I like the Rainbow, I like the clouds, I like the doggie, Rainbow stick boy is cool." I've read him hundreds, maybe thousands of books, so that's a pretty honest and positive review.

From the beginning of the story I was enamored with the creative aspects of this book. How clever to use Wiki Stix for illustrations, and cute illustrations at that!

More than just vivid colors and imagination, this book holds such a sweet story, and teaches a wonderful lessons on friendships, love and accepting yourself for the way you are.

I highly recommend this book!

I received this wonderful children's ebook free luckily. I, and my 7 year old lived the simplicity of the illustrations and the underlying meaning of the story is very important to all children (and many adults who may not have learned it along the way).

Wonderful story & wonderfully whimsical artwork.

I really enjoyed quite a few things about this book. I loved that the illustrations were made with WikiStix! Awesome! I also loved that Rainbow Stick boy made a straw suit - how cool is that. The ending was very cool too! I can't wait to read this to my kids tomorrow!

"The Rainbow Stick Boy" touched my heart! I have been an early childhood educator for many, many years and have always promoted a love for differences whether they be in race, religion, resolution etc. Reaching children at a young age to both recognize and embrace diversity is the best way to achieve world peace in the future. This statement may seem far-reaching on the surface,but I guarantee you if we don't start when they're young, our chances diminish dramatically as they become older. Children fear differences unless we teach them to not only not fear them, but foster a love for people and things that are not a reflection of what's the status quo. Michael's book, quite simply gives us an effective and beautiful springboard for broaching the subject of diversity with our very youngest. Thanks Michael, well done!

I got an ARC of The Rainbow Stick Boy, both written and illustrated by Michael Santolini. This short children's book is really a delight to read. Besides, the illustrations make you get into the stories at another level, almost a magical one. The story and illustrations look very simple, but the story is a very deep one. It talks about a boy who is born different to the rest of the people in his town, the Rainbow Stick Boy. Since he is different, people start discriminating him. Along the book you get to know more of this peculiar and special character, the Rainbow Stick Boy, and you see how people start liking him better when something happens.

I think it is interesting that children read such a lovely book as The Rainbow Stick Boy, since they can learn how to accept differences. In a multicultural world, that is a very important value, and this book is successful in making you understand that differences are good and we must accept people who may look "different" to us.

The language used is also suitable for a children audience, and the illustrations make it easier to understand the text. The illustrations are very original ones, very creative, and they have surprised me quite a lot. I would certainly recommend this book for children.

I was sent a copy of The Rainbow Stick Boy (Kindle Edition) by Michael Santolini for an honest review. I really enjoyed this story (I read to my 3-yr-old) This children's book explores the fact that we are all different and that it's OKAY that we are. I read this through Amazon Cloud Reader so we were able to enjoy the playful colors in this book.. This story was original, and a great learning tool to share with your children. I would recommend this story to all families. There should be more books similar to this one.
