Reena is deaf and Dog is homeless, but they are also so much more than that. At first Reena and Dog feel like they don’t belong, but when they form a unique bond with each other, and become friends with the hearing children in the park, they discover that everyone is different and special in their own way. Reena’s Rainbow is about friendship, diversity and acceptance. It sends the message that true friends will always accept your differences and love you just the way you are.
