Bear sees a rainbow and thinks the sky's on fire. Bird sees the rainbow and says there's a pot of gold at the end. Both head off on their own missions: to dowse the "fire" and find the gold. And somehow, both are successful! Good for preschool with some explanation about what rainbows are.

This is the same bear, same series, as "Happy Birthday Moon", a book I read and loved as a kid. Until now I wasn't aware it was part of a series.

In this book, bear sees a rainbow and doesn't understand what it is. He is convinced the sky is on fire, so he throws a bucket of water at the rainbow. I think it's cute that bear's little bird friend thinks the honey is the "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow, while bear still believes he successfully put out the "skyfire". Shows how simple things can be seen so differently by different people. This book has simple but very cute illustrations that really capture the story. ( )

Bear doesn't know what a rainbow is and he thinks it's a fire in the sky. So he pours water on it -- and it disappears. A little bird finds a "pot of gold" -- i.e., honey -- where the rainbow was, but Bear continues to believe he put out the skyfire.
