Reena hates rainy days. She hates the way the dark clouds make everything look so dull.
Rekha loves rainy days. She loves the way the rain makes the earth smell.
When Rekha spots a rainbow, she rushes indoors to tell her sister about it. Reena will want to paint it, for sure!
But when the sisters go outside to find it, the rainbow disappears. Where could it have gone?
A vibrantly illustrated tale about finding light even in the gloomiest of times, How to Find a Rainbow will warm your heart — and give you a handy guide to making your own rainbow, too!

Incredible artwork and lovely story. I cant wait to have it in my hands as i enjoyed the digitsl version so much. Incredible work
What a beautiful book! This children's picture book is absolutely gorgeously illustrated in tones of green and yellow, with the two "girls" (in the form of foxes) in red/orange. Until the rainbows make their appearances. The water colors are dreamy and really convey the gloom and damp of the rainy day that Reena hates. Her sister Rekha loves rainy days and goes out to explore. While outside the sun peeks out from behind a cloud and a rainbow appears (and the illustrations brighten accordingly). Rekha goes to drag her unwilling sister out to see the rainbow. Naturally it has disappeared, so they go in search. Along the way the older sister Reena teaches Rekha about rainbows, how they come about and what the colors are called and in which order. At the back of the book are explicit instructions on how to hunt for rainbows and also how to make your own rainbow (with spray from a hose)!
