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.

Here is the synopsis at the back of the book:

Step into this beautifully illustrated story, introducing a world of imagination and immerse yourself into a day of play with a group of butterfly friends ~ and one who was different. Experience a small world come alive through rich, happy colors and whimsical drawings. Enjoy an interactive, fun story about finding friendship, self-acceptance, and tolerance while the friends strive to “ride the rainbow” and learn new things about themselves. Come and let this magical group of butterfly buddies entertain your while they explore their small world with you ~ and attempt to fulfill their dreams.
