Book Review: "What's On The Other Side Of The Rainbow?"
The book looks very attractive with soft colors and a very friendly font.
The book has a large dimension which is making it important, but it is not thick and heavy.
It is very comfortable to handle, especially for grown people who are going to read it for younger
The paper has very good quality and the half glossy finish is just perfect. No mirroring.
The pages turn very well and at the end you quickly discover (The Secret...... :- )
After reading the content my observations are further:
The illustrations are nice, interesting and you have lots to see and wonder.
The pages in this way are giving you a positive attitude to discover it all.
After reading the story it is obvious that it is a very positive story and more important it has a
GREAT meaning. The message is in my view a fundamental message for "All People" and in this
way directed to younger ones. The GREAT message is built up from different sub messages, from
which there are several essential messages.
These essential messages are (as I see it)
- that you have many different feelings
- that all feelings are OK
- that every feeling has a reason
- that you can make contact with all your feelings ("Every feeling has a door")
The text in the text-clouds are very simple and therefore readable by young kids.
I think that parents can make optimal use of the book by reading it to their children, page by
page and telling what they themselves think about the content on the page.
The text-clouds are leading you to subjects you can talk about. The very often repeated
text-clouds, "Every feeling has a reason. Every feeling has a door," in this way makes sure that
the parent does not forget this essential message. This makes the book a GREAT instrument for

As I sat down to write this, my thoughts were of how I could speak to the world, picturing the entire world as being one child. Although our situations may be different, we all feel from the same place, from within our heart and emotions. Therefore, it is important for our children to understand that the feelings and emotions they experience are always meant for constructive reasons, instead of the destructive ones we sometimes feel.With love and understanding, and with all of us working together, hand in hand, we can create a safe and harmonious place on our beautiful home we call Earth.
My deepest wish is that someday all violence will end with one great big "HUSH!"

" I was both delighted and surprised by the story's simplicity and effectiveness.
Carla's light verse encourages readers to apply its simple message to their own feelings and
situations. This work is inspirational in its ability to create a non-threatening forum where
it is safe for participants to name and discuss their own feelings with one another. I heartily
recommend this book to any wishing to facilitate a meaningful and growth-filled discussion
in a group setting."

"As a college professor I deal with young people who come from all kinds of family
situations. Carla's wonderful prose explains to young children many concepts related to
emotions at a level that is appropriate for that age group. Her enthusiasm in helping
children comes through with great intensity in this work."

"Over the years I have had many books presented to me in regards to the betterment of
my child; this is one book I am happy to say meets several of my standards. It is apparent
that great thought, concern and consideration were taken in producing this book. I hope
other readers will enjoy and appreciate it as I have."

" I have been a 4th grade teacher for four years at an at risk school, teaching students
who were dealing with their parent's addiction, alcoholism, molestation, domestic
violence, divorce, death, and AIDS. Carla's book about feelings addresses a real need. I think it is a valuable
and much needed teaching resource."

" In this day and age of declining values, it is more than essential to have positive role
models. I'm certain your book will add to the lives of the children who read it."

" I wish to commend your literary efforts in your book."What's On the Other Side of the Rainbow?" The book is well written and addresses
important children's issues, that of feelings. In addition to being entertaining for children
and educational as a reading tool, the book is significant as it allows children to
understand their feelings."

" It was a privilege to have been able to read,"What's On The Other Side Of The Rainbow?" As an educator I can attest to the
need for such a book in our schools not only at the elementary level but at the secondary
level as well. You have created a rich and fertile field for introspection. Particularly
valuable is that the book is non-judgemental, but allows the reader to reflect what "is" and
to make decisions as individual situations come to light. I look forward to utilizing
"What's On The Other Side Of The Rainbow?" within the scope of my duties as a
teacher of writing and teacher of teachers."
