"Raine's Rainbow Socks" written by Richard Ditchburn turned out to be an enchanting story about a little girl named Raine and her Grandfathers' birthday present for her.
When Raine opens his present, she is surprised to find only seven pair of socks. She looks at her Grandfather and he explains that her socks are all the colors of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
Raine is very surprised when her Grandfather explains that her socks also have "magical" powers and when she needs to solve a "mystery", she only needs to put on the first pair of socks and she can solve the mystery.
This short story is very well illustrated, very colorful and it should hold the attention of both the reader/parent and the child.
The story is so well-done that it also makes the adult stop and think, about the colors of the rainbow and how to solve problems such as a child might encounter, all the while helping the child to learn how to think for themselves.
Would I recommend this book to others? YES! I most certainly would!
