The story tells the tale of 7 little lizards who are safe and happy at home with their parents, King Upinde and Queen Wamvua. The king warns his children to never leave their bonny brown bog, a place where they will always be safe and sound.

Shortly afterwards, however, Queen Wamvua confides to her 7 little lizards that she has heard there are other colors out there in the world.

The 7 little lizards decide to go out and see for themselves. One by one, they encounter different colored frogs, and they learn many new songs celebrating all the different colors of the world. The lizards transform, in fact, changing into all the different colors they meet!

They return home to and share these experiences with their parents. King Upinde realizes it was wrong to shield his little lizards from the other colors of the world, and learns that “It Takes A Rainbow” to make a world complete.
