The Rainbow Fish

This is a beautifully illustrated book that tells the story of a unique fish that is very special as she has gorgeous shiny scales. She takes pride in being the most beautiful fish in the sea and is very protective of her scales. On numerous occasions throughout the story other fish approach her asking for one scale but the rainbow fish always refused to share her unique and beautiful scales. As time went by the rainbow fish felt very alone as no one wanted to play with her as a result of her selfishness. She suddenly realised that if she was kind and shared some of her scales with the other fish that she would be able to make friends with them. She began to be kind and shared her scales with anyone who requested one. The rainbow fish learned that being selfish gets you no-where and that kindness is very important. She made new friends and all the fish shared the rainbow fish beautiful scales. This is an excellent story across the age groups and it great for role-play. A year six class performed this at an assembly and it got across the messages that sharing is caring. Being kind is very important and we all should learn from the rainbow fish and her experience.
