Publisher: Balboa Press, a division of Hay House, Inc.

"The Boots Rain" was born as a poem and remains so in this newly minted Book One of Kelly Anne Manuel's Rainbow's End Series.

In this story the Child is invited on a journey to experience an entirely new event that the narrator is so eager to share. The narrator describes this fictitious occurrence with such wonder, amazement and vigor, that the Child will naturally join in for the fun.

"The Boots Rain" offers a standing invitation to the Child. Journey to the tail of a rainbow's end and see what fantastical adventures await. In "The Boots Rain" the Child will experience a fun and unique way to look at rain in a different light.

The story is meant to be a challenge to the regular idea of rain boots and the author hopes to spark curiosity and discussion. The simple words take on new meaning as the illustrations pair perfectly with their presentation.

The illustrations lead the way to an adventure where considering a different approach to a common event in nature is expected. The Child's imagination will be ignited with possibilities as all manner of images leap off the page. Children are naturally able to imagine events that are characteristic of a playful youth.

Why not join the narrator on a discovery mission to find out exactly what a Boots Rain is? In this story the author invites the Child to actively engage in flexing their imagination muscle while visually stimulated with color, rainbows, and even a unicorn. It is in Early Childhood that futures are being constructed.

"The Boots Rain" is a tool in a Caregiver's toolbox to assist with that healthy formation. The idea that every boot that falls in the Boots Rain is unique, individual and one of a kind, is an important message that the author wants to relay.

The Child who reads this book will be rewarded with a fantastical insight to what magical events occur at the tail of a rainbow's end.

I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Kelly Anne Manuel and RABT Books Tours and PR. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

The Boots Rain began as a poem and remains so in this first book in Kelly Anne Manuel’s Rainbow’s End Series. This book invites children to journey to the tail of a rainbow’s end and see what fantastical adventures await. This book allows children to experience rainbows in a new light. The simple words take on new meaning and the illustrations perfectly match and invites the child to consider different approaches on their new adventure.

I enjoyed this book. It is well written, and I love its message that each of us are unique, and our individuality is something to celebrate. The illustrations are gorgeous, they captivated me as I read through the book while also activating my imagination of the possibilities. This is a perfect book for both young and old readers and it’s a great reminder to value the diversity around us. It also serves as a great conversation starter when teaching children, the importance of respecting everyone regardless of their background.

I’d love to see the book in schools across the nation and look forward to reading more of the series.
