Book Review: "What's On The Other Side Of The Rainbow?"
The book looks very attractive with soft colors and a very friendly font.
The book has a large dimension which is making it important, but it is not thick and heavy.
It is very comfortable to handle, especially for grown people who are going to read it for younger
The paper has very good quality and the half glossy finish is just perfect. No mirroring.
The pages turn very well and at the end you quickly discover (The Secret...... :- )
After reading the content my observations are further:
The illustrations are nice, interesting and you have lots to see and wonder.
The pages in this way are giving you a positive attitude to discover it all.
After reading the story it is obvious that it is a very positive story and more important it has a
GREAT meaning. The message is in my view a fundamental message for "All People" and in this
way directed to younger ones. The GREAT message is built up from different sub messages, from
which there are several essential messages.
These essential messages are (as I see it)
- that you have many different feelings
- that all feelings are OK
- that every feeling has a reason
- that you can make contact with all your feelings ("Every feeling has a door")
The text in the text-clouds are very simple and therefore readable by young kids.
I think that parents can make optimal use of the book by reading it to their children, page by
page and telling what they themselves think about the content on the page.
The text-clouds are leading you to subjects you can talk about. The very often repeated
text-clouds, "Every feeling has a reason. Every feeling has a door," in this way makes sure that
the parent does not forget this essential message. This makes the book a GREAT instrument for
