I was sent a copy of the book The Day We Rode The Rainbow by Jody F. Mays to review a few months back. Books are my absolute loves and I will not pass on the chance to share with you another children’s book that you and your children might find interesting.

The Day We Rode The Rainbow in a nutshell

This colorful, whimsical book is a story about 2 butterflies and their friends. It is an interactive book that tackles friendship as well as respecting each other’s differences. It teaches children about being friends with anyone, even those who are different.

  2. No child here, but I wouldn’t mind reading that book for myself. I love children’s books, they are colorful, fun, and of course, the story always ends with a lesson.

    If I win a copy of The Day We Rode the Rainbow I am going to give it to my niece who also happens to by godchild, simply because she loves to read and I know this is one gift she would love.

  3. I love the fact that children books are becoming more interactive nowadays.. the stickers and sometimes they come up with audio and mini toys.. i think it’s a great way to encourage kids to read than spending their time with their gadgets

    1. It is true children’s book writers ought to be more creative nowadays so they can compete with interactive games on hand-held gadgets that are oh-so appealing to children.

  4. Oh this is too perfect!! I’ve been looking for an inspiration for a children’s book that I’m writing! this is the perfect timing !!!

  5. I love how visually appealing this book is!! i would love to add this on to my future to read books to my future kids.xo

  6. Just curious, are books like this still attractive to kids? I mean I saw kids going after the gadgets of their parents and siblings. I’m not against books, in fact it’s a great way to teach kids and bond with their parents. Just want to know since my kiddos are already teenagers, and those in my circle are not into it.

    1. If children where raised at a young age to read and enjoy books, then I am sure this book will still be attractive to them. I have a 6-year old and he enjoys reading books as much as he loves his gadget.

  7. This is so nice! I love books too. I have actually kept my books for my son when he grows up. I’m hoping to instill the same love for reading that I had as a child (until now). I even kept my children’s encyclopedia. 🙂 hope we win this. My son would love it!

  8. I will give it to my daughter, Alyssa Ashley because she loves to read story books and she tells the story to her classmates, teachers and friends. I am very happy that she shares whatever story I had read to her to others. And I believe that this book “The Day We Rode A Rainbow” she will be sharing the story with her classmates and she will take them on a creative adventure.

  9. If lucky, I’ll give the book to my 2 daughters. My eldest is 7 and she already loves reading and the book will be a nice addition to her growing collection. This will also bond them since she’ll be sharing this with her sister who we are slowly introducing to books 🙂

  10. I would give my copy of “The Day We Rode The Rainbow” to my five year old granddaughter. She loves being read to and has now begun to read on her own. We’ve recently started reading age appropriate chapter books and she is thoroughly enjoying them. I’m hoping to instill the love of reading that her Papa & Memaw both enjoy!

    1. That’s lovely! Thank you for your comment. This giveaway is already closed, I am cooking another giveaway here on the blog this month, I sure hope you can join 🙂

  11. I do love reading books even when I was a kid. Up to now, I love collecting books that I think I must have another bookshelf. Whenever I buy a book that I love, I would also buy one for my niece. I want her to develop the love of reading. It is really helpful that the kids grow up loving books.
