Displaced by the Pakistan floods, Rani’s family has taken refuge at a relief camp where they are doing their part to help other flood victims. Eight-year old Rani wants to assist but doesn’t know how. Heeding the advice of her father to help in a way only children can, Rani embarks on a journey to bring true joy to a dear friend on the occasion of Eid.
Rani in Search of a Rainbow is an inspiring children's book about Rani, who has taken refuge at a relif camp, along with her family, when the floods hit in Pakistan. She wants to help, but has no idea how - until she comes up with a plan. The book talks about how it's like to live in a refuge camp, through colorful and cute illustrations, and about one little girl's desire to make things better for her and her family. The book also explains Ramadan Eid, what the celebration means, and even what people eat during such an event. I learned a lot while reading, so I'm sure little kids will learn even more. The illustrations are lovely, and the writing is suitable for younger children.
