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)!
