Rainbow is My Favourite Colour
Colours are for everyone in this lively, feel-good story that challenges gender norms.
Bronte is a little girl who is expected to like pink. But that won't always do, as Bronte eloquently expresses in Rainbow is My Favourite Colour. She loves the green of grassy hills, the blue of her favourite boots and the purple of plums – in fact, she loves all the colours of the rainbow!
Rainbow is My Favourite Colour is an irresistible rhyming story that will charm all young colour enthusiasts (and those who enjoy smashing gender stereotypes!).
