Reviews - What do customers think about Rainbow Garden?

Very dated and poorly written  Jul 12, 2009
There is something very off about this book: try as I might, I could just never picture the Welsh countryside, with which I am very familiar. I never got a clear image of the Owen family members, either. The story is a very dated, poor little girl sent off to live with strangers tale, complete with a crippled girl. It is very obviously an attempt to convince children that Jesus Is The Way, in a very forced style. No child thinks the way the children in the story do.
glad I stayed with it  Oct 18, 2005
The Rainbow Garden is a book about a young girl, Elaine, whose mother goes to Paris and sends her to the country with Mrs. Owen and Rev. Owen with their rambunctious kids.
Elaine, a young shy girl from London, is at first very scared of these children. She finds a garden and cares for it until one day she sees as strange man. There are many predicaments Elaine gets into while she lived in the country.
This was a very boring book until the half way mark. I was about to quit but it got much more interesting. This is not a good book for young readers with short attention spans.
Rainbow Garden, revised by Mary Mills  Sep 3, 2003
I dearly loved this book as a child from about the age of 9 years and up, and still enjoy going back to the original to read the descriptions and explanations. In the original book there may be a few words that are less understandable to a school-aged child who does not normally do much reading, but the descriptions are wonderful and realistic. I've found that well-written Christian books for children are rather rare, and St. John's writing is exceptionally good. I found her capable of bringing Christianity to life in a very understandable way, while weaving a beautiful story about real sorts of people/children.

I was very disappointed, though, to read the addition revised by Mary Mills in 2002, and now the only one you can buy new. The book has been very abridged. Many of the descriptions that brought the humanness and delightfulness of the characters and their experiences to life, have been cleanly ommited. Also, most lines in the entire book have been re-written to be either simpler, or just less descriptive. I do not believe children today are so incapable of reading, to require the severe revisions done to this book.

The original book was a beautiful, joyful book.

Unique  Jun 1, 2000
As a child of 8 or so, I read this book to myself. At first read, I thought it a rather strange book. It was only after three more reads later in my life that I finally understood the plot. This book is well worth the money simply because of the beautiful images that made me cry as an 8 year old, but save your dollars until your child is old enough to sort through the images to find the plot.
Wonderful Story  Dec 28, 1999
I loved RAINBOW GARDEN as a little girl. As an adult, I still re-read it every couple of years. In my opinion, this beautiful story should be considered a Christian classic. Both well-written and touching, RAINBOW GARDEN is a story about how a lonely little girl finds fulness of joy. Patricia M. St. John paints wonderful pictures of happy childhood and those little incidents that have such great meaning and excitement.
