Rain before Rainbows a beautiful story written by Smriti Halls who says -
'It has been wonderful to see rainbows everywhere, symbolizing hope in these troubled times. I hope the book will remind us that there are friends to help us and new beginnings to be found'
David Litchfield the illustrator says –
Drawing this book was a complete joy. I was inspired to capture the emotion in the pictures through the eyes of a little girl and her fox friend. They find themselves on a really tough and really scary journey, but they keep going, holding on to hope. And for the past few months a lot of you have been drawing your own rainbows and displaying them in your windows. I have loved seeing some of these drawings on my daily walks. They make me think about all of the brave people in the world. They also remind me of the girl and her magic fox and the journey they had together. Hope over fear.
Rain before rainbows.
