There will be many books written about Covid and it’s effects on people and the World but few will be as inspiring as this picture book from the UK in support of Save the Children.

All the world had to stay home today. I wished that it didn’t. I wanted to play.

These are the opening lines to this picture book and you know what it is all about already.

A small girl decides to make a rainbow to give hope and joy to everybody and to show that we have had bad times before and got over them and we will get over this.

She has problems and fun putting together ROY G BIV the colours of the rainbow on paper and hanging it in her window. But what a brilliant idea. Check it out for yourself
