My review of On Top of the Rainbow by K. Meador

On Top of the Rainbow is a delightful children’s story, which delves into the priorities of life, and what is truly important. 

Five-year-old Gabe is distraught because of breaking a toy airplane and decides to run away from home rather than having to confess to his parents and Papa.  Grabbing Dino, his toy dinosaur, he runs out of the yard and heads towards the forest where he meets a Leprechaun named Lep who guards a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.   

When Gabe answers Lep’s riddle, he climbs the rainbow where he meets a beautiful unicorn named Elita.  Gabe misses his family, but he is also curious about the wondrous things he can see at the end of the rainbow.

Will Gabe forge ahead, knowing he might never return home once the rainbow disappears, or will be forget about the magical land and go home?  No spoilers here.

The author does an excellent job in conveying family values, detailing a crucial lesson to teach a young impressionable mind.   I look forward to reading more of this author’s works.
