In this story, Reena is deaf, and Dog is homeless, but they are also so much more than that. At first Reena and Dog feel like they don’t belong, but when they form a unique bond of friendship with the children in the park, they discover that everyone is different in their own special ways. 

Reena’s Rainbow is about friendship, diversity, and acceptance. It sends the message that true friends will always accept your differences and love you just the way you are.

Praise For Reena's Rainbow

"We are like the colours of the rainbow . . . all different. But when we stand together we are one’. So says Reena’s mother when Reena feels she doesn’t belong. She finds a constant and faithful friend and together they become part of the rainbow. A heartwarming story illustrated with a rainbow palette."

Reena's emotions are gently portrayed, and the illustrations softly match the tone of the story line, doing a particularly good job at developing the relationship between Dog and Reena.
