Review: The Rainbow Fish is a wonderful series. Each story has a moral/theme to teach children. Rainbow Fish and his friend help bumpy-backed fish. They faced their fears to help a friend out. I love the illustration in this book especially that each fish had a sparkly scale that Rainbow Fish had even each fish in another book. The theme of this story is to overcome your fears and learning to face your fears.

Learning Experience: This would be a great book to introduce when a student in the clas...more

I like these books because they always teach a moral lesson to kids. This one has to do with facing your fears and realizing that they weren't that scary once you saw them for what they were. But I like the fact that the rainbow fish decides to confront them even when all his friends tell him that he shouldn't
I really liked the illustrations in this one. It's even better than the first one, The Rainbow Fish. Each new page comes in a new hue, and they're so pretty you almost want to eat them. My son was really uneasy when he realized in the story they were headed for a sea monster's cave. I had to promise him we would skip a page if it was too scary, and indeed we went through some of them pretty fast. But rest assured, there's nothing bad in this book and in fact it's a good lesson in courage.

This book is hit in our house! The graphics, with a little silvery shine on each fish, are wonderfully engaging. The story is also good. Basically, it is about overcoming fears and how many of our fears turn out to be unfounded. This is a secular book, and I would like my kids to approach challenges with both prayer and courage, but we all still enjoy the courage and clarity of this work. Looking forward to more Rainbow Fish!

This Rainbow Fish book is all about facing a fear and discovering it wasn't that scary in the first place. A great book to read aloud when something new is coming up in the class to help children see they can overcome their fears. Grades k through 2nd.

Rainbow Fish does it again. He and his friend, little blue fish, have to face their fears to help a friend. On their way back, they realize that the things that scared them, aren't really scary at all.

Aw!!!!!!!!! What a stupid book for kidz! I really was looking forward to reading it!
The fish are sparkly, the story, though, is a bit lackluster.
