The Rainbow Fish is a book about a beautiful fish who is proud of his colorful scales. There is only one problem. No one really wants to be his friend, and he is very lonely. He decides to share his scales with the other fish who are not shiny and beautiful. The more scales he shares, the less beautiful he becomes; but he becomes happy as a result because he is not lonely anymore. This book is appropriate for Kindergarten or first grade. This could be an invaluable resource to introduce the concept of sharing to the class. In the book, you could emphasize that even though the rainbow fish was a little sad to give away his scales, in the end he was much happier. If your classroom needs some artwork, this would be an excellent book to include an art project with.
