The Rainbow Hand by Janet S. Wong is a book of eighteen poems that talk about the relationship between a mother and child. Some of the poems are told from the mother’s point of view and others through the point of view of the child. The poems were written about a young woman’s relationship with her mother and all the things she remembers about her mother and also the things her mother used to do for her. I really enjoyed reading this book and it made me think about the relationship I have with my mother, and also the relationship I hope to someday have with my children. My mother and I have a special bond, I consider her as one of my best friends and while reading these poems I was able to reflect on that in a positive way. The poems in the book were not all exactly the same; they followed the criteria but some more than others when it comes to rhyming. The book was not very long but was still very easy to read. I think what made it easiest to read is that everyone can relate to it. Every person has a relationship with their mother whether it is good or bad. This book is a good way to reflect that relationship and I believe it can be used in the classroom in that way also. It made me appreciate my mom more and all the things she used to do for me. I think this would be good for children because it’s hard at that age to realize how important your mother is.
