    1 thought on “Rainbow Garden”

    1. From the author of Treasures of the Snow.This is an enjoyable Christian children's book. Elaine moves from the city to the country determined to despise everything and everyone but she slowly learns that it is in helping others that she finds her true happiness. Recommended for children and teens.

    2. (Three or four stars, not sure.) I appreciated much of the story and the way the characters were changed. And I could relate with the main character--in some ways I was quite similar to her when I was 11, too (very selfish, hating babies, and proud)! I also liked the sacrifices and struggles the characters had after becoming saved. And the storyline was quite riveting in other ways, too. I thought there probably should have been some Biblical references at the end when Elaine is deciding whether [...]

    3. There are heaps of books in this 'series'. Great read with kids. Makes you appreciate the warm clothes, good food and well resourced schools we have! Weaves God into the circumstances of the books really well so that the reader is encouraged to include God in their goings on too because He cares for them. Very descriptive and well written.

    4. As usual, Patricia St. John delivers a heartwarming story about the Savior's love, and how it can work in our lives. A predictable story in many ways, but enjoyable just the same.

    5. I read this aloud to the kids and we all really enjoyed it. Elaine was an angry, insecure girl, who was lonely and didn't always make the best choices. She longed for the "fullness of joy" that she heard about through the family she was staying with. She then comes to know Christ as her own Savior and her heart softens. I loved how it describes her internal struggles to want to continue to do whatever SHE likes vs trying to follow God's path of life and how she discovers that in His presence is [...]

    6. Elaine, from London, is unhappy, insecure and self-centered when she comes to live with a large family in Wales. It's a large adjustment, but finding a special place of her own and learning about fulness of joy help her to see God's truth. Patricia St. John can enter the mind of a child like few other writers. If at all possible read the original editions. I simply don't understand why people would re-write British children's literature.

    7. I thought it was such a cool story about how God can really change somebody's life once they know him and choose to follow him.

    8. “Only Frances lingered, making daisy chains for the new grave [for the rabbit:]. She loved the little cemetery, for to Frances the grave was nothing but a door into heaven where nothing was hurt or killed or destroyed. But of course I knew nothing about this at the time.”

    9. Growing up, I must have read this book at least a dozen times. A wonderful children's book! I actually still have my childhood copy.

    10. Great book. Really good ending too. Everything doesn't turn out picture perfect in the end. Refreshingly realistic.

    11. This story is of how selfish and spoiled Elaine from London changes when she becomes a Christian while living with the Owens family in rural Wales.

    12. Read when I was ten, it was a gift from my uncle. It was my favourite book and I re-read it even when it fell apart

    13. I LOVED this book. Fantastic book for all ages. Very old, and hard to find however. I expect to re-read it soon. Its been awhile
