The Rainbow Fish
The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister,J. Alison James

The Rainbow Fish is a childhood classic that teaches children the importance of sharing. In this story we are introduced to Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful fish in the sea. He is selfish with his scales and does not want to share them, which quickly causes him to be friendless. Rainbow Fish seeks the advice from a star fish, who encourages him to share his beautiful scales. Rainbow Fish takes the star fish advice and shares his scales until they are all gone. Although Rainbow Fish no longer has his beautiful scales, he finds himself surrounded with beautiful friends. 


How I would use this book in my classroom:

I would read this book in my class with the hopes that my students learn the importance of sharing. I would read it during whole group and even allow my students to create their own rainbow fish during a mental break moment.

The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister,J. Alison James

Lexile Level: AD410L


The rainbow fish is the "most beautiful fish in the entire ocean" and he refuses to share his gills with any other fish in the sea. The rainbow fish's selfishness isolates him because no one wants to be his friend. Later on, the rainbow fish asked for advice from an octopus and  then the fish "discovered how to be happy" by sharing his sparkling gills with his friends. 


I would use this book to teach my students how to share.
