Review: Rainbow Stick Boy

Michael Santolini
Rating: 5 Stars 


This is the story of Huey, a stick boy who is born a little different than everyone else in the town. He doesn’t let his differences keep him down. Huey finds a friend who is also a little different and together they find the magic at the end of the rainbow, and discover that their differences are really only skin deep.

I had seen The Rainbow Stick boy mentioned on Twitter for awhile before the review so I was already plenty curious.

Rainbow Stick Boy is a charming book. Simple illustrations but a deep story.

I love this book. It is one I think should be in every school library, as well as used in elementary school curriculum.

We are all different, it is something that should be accepted and celebrated.  Rainbow Stick boy gets that point across beautifully.
