Birds have their legends just like people do, and baby birds love to hear the stories. Papa Cardinal, whose job it is to pass down bird ways to his chicks, tells them the story of how birds gave the world the rainbow. It's a tale of fun and squabbles and magic! Suggested age range for readers : 3-8 (Amazon)
A Rainbow of Birds is a brightly hued tale of how birds gave the world the enchanting gift of rainbows.
As the chicks wait for the rain to pass they ask Papa Cardinal to tell them a story. He tells them the most amazing tale of a colorful array of birds that came together to create magic in the sky.
This lively story teaches children the colors of the rainbow in a fun and imaginative way. To instill further learning the book also contains facts as well as myths about rainbows and activities children can do to make their own.
I recommend picking up a copy of A Rainbow of Birds. Available on Amazon.
