I Love You As Big As A Rainbow

written by Joan Summers

ISBN 9781680102093

After a rainbow appears in the sky and then disappears, Small Bear and Big Bear decide to make a rainbow together that will last forever.

A gentle, touching story that celebrates the special love between parent and child.

Torres’ cartoon scenes are full of small details to delight—an inchworm on a stem, a squirrel parasailing

with a fall leaf, woodland creatures watching and joining in the fun—but most of all the very apparent love the bears have for one another.
