My Rainbow Guides' Top Ten Story Books

"catalogueannie"
 
Penguins in the Fridge
Penguins in the Fridge
"A great story, that also includes a penguin template. My Rainbows loved the Penguin Song ('Have you ever seen a penguin come to tea ...'), so this was a natural choice."
Owl Babies
Owl Babies
"I bought the poster version and we read it together before the ceremony for them to go up to Brownies. It made the ones going up feel very grown up to read Sarah and Percy's lines!"
The Rainbow Fish
The Rainbow Fish
"We're Rainbow Guides, so we love Rainbow Fish! It's also a great story about its being OK to be different."
Rainbow Fish to the Rescue
Rainbow Fish to the Rescue
"Even better - Rainbow Fish is a hero! All the Rainbow Fish books are great, but this one deserves a special mention."
Frog and the Stranger
Frog and the Stranger
"Frog and the Stranger. All the Frog books are great, but this one was my Rainbows' favourite. It shows how important it is to be welcoming to new people."
Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh
"When I arrived at my second Rainbow unit, their favourite game was Mrs Bear's Honeypot ... based on the Winnie the Pooh rhyme 'Isn't it funny how bears like hunny ...' so this was a popular choice"
Guess How Much I Love You
Guess How Much I Love You
"A good book to read when someone is feeling insecure: no matter how much Little Nut Brown Hare loves his Daddy, his Daddy loves him more, and there's a special security in that."
Stories from World Religions (Viking Kestrel Picture Books)
Stories from World Religions (Viking Kestrel Picture Books)
"This is the best book I know about world religions for the Rainbow age-group. It does not preach, but tells the stories well and keeps the kids' attention."
You're a Hero, Daley B
You're a Hero, Daley B
"Daley B is so dumb he doesn't even know he's a rabbit, but he saves the day nonetheless. A funny story that shows that everyone has a talent."
A Bear Called Paddington (Armada Lions)
A Bear Called Paddington (Armada Lions)
"The Paddington books are my favourite books ever. I have loads of Brownie and Guide activities based on Paddington, and even the youngest Rainbows loved him. Who wouldn't?"
