Finding Rainbows
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "The sun is out!" shouted Eric as he raced to his sister's room. "The sun is out, and the rain has stopped. I want to see the rainbow. You promised to show me!"
 
2     Mandy sighed. He was right; she had promised. She turned off her MP3 player and set her headphones aside.
 
3     "Come on," she said. "If there is a rainbow, I'll show you how to find it."
 
4     They walked out to the backyard together, and Eric looked toward the sun. His shoulders drooped with disappointment.
 
5     "There's no rainbow," he said sadly.
 
6     "That's because you're looking in the wrong direction," said Mandy with a laugh. She held Eric by the shoulders and turned him around. "You have to put your back to the sun and face the rain clouds."
 
7     "Wow!" said Eric as his gaze fastened on the beautiful rainbow. "That is so beautiful! Look at the colors."
 
8     "Can you tell me what colors you see?" asked Mandy.
 
9     "Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, a bluish purple, and purple" said Eric, listing off the colors.
