In The Day the Colors Became Friends, artist and author Debra Madison offers her interpretation of a traditional Native American tale. The tale begins as each color declares its importance and superiority. They are led to join together in true community as represented by the rainbow, the place where all are connected as one while each maintains its unique identity.
We is more fun than me…
Let’s be willing to reach out to one another in friendship! The story of the rainbow encourages us to appreciate and even celebrate our differences, knowing we are here to be in relationships and grow. We look to the natural variety of this world as an example of what is possible. This heart-opening story conveys a hopeful message for a brighter tomorrow, leading us through the doorway of nature to access the universe. Illustrated with Debra Madison’s dramatic images, The Day the Colors Became Friends is a book that both children and adults will enjoy, over and over again.
