Rainbow Chasers is a story of childlike wonder. After a storm, a marvelous rainbow appears in the morning sky. Curious beyond measure, five children set off on an adventure to find "treasure" at the end of the rainbow. Dreaming of the riches to be found, the characters discover the richness of wonder in the simplest of Earth's treasures.
Lisa Waters-Smith enjoys sharing children's books and stories to instill curiosity and wonder to her students and children in her life. Lisa has fond memories of her father and grandfather fascinating her mind with stories as a young girl. The love of good storytelling inspired Smith to author Rainbow Chasers, her first book. This idea behind the story began years ago when Katie and Harrison were young children. Fast forward many years, adding John, Robert, and Tony to the family made for the perfect timing to finish this story and fulfill Lisa's dream.
Jennifer Gardiner partnered on this project with Smith, putting her artistic talents to work. Jennifer has published her first book, A Trip Around the Pond, and plans to share more stories and art of life as seen through the eyes of young children. The two became friends just over one year before working together on Rainbow Chasers. Jennifer's artistic magic coupled with Lisa's creative storytelling created a storybook that children will enjoy time and time again.
