Annotations for Leprechaun Who Lost His Rainbow


Albert Whitman & Co
It's raining, and Colleen is sad. How can her grandfather play his bagpipes in the St. Patrick's Day parade? His music is so beautiful it makes people laugh and cry at once. Suddenly, a leprechaun appears before her. He says he can make the sun come out by creating a rainbow - but to build its colors, Colleen must give up the thing she holds most dear. Sean Callahan's sweet, surprising story is complemented by Nancy Cote's bright paintings. A note at the end explains the science of rainbows and the Roy G. Biv naming tradition.
