This week Joshua brought home another book from school, The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. We had this book before we moved, but it was a little old for our kids. Now we have the joy of reading it again, when they can understand more of the truths taught in this story.
The rainbow fish is the most beautiful fish in the ocean, but he is proud and refuses to play with the other fish. One day, a little blue fish asks him for one of his beautiful scales. The rainbow fish is incredibly rude. Soon, none of the other fish will even go near him.
He goes to the wise old octopus to learn what he should do. The octopus tells him to give away his beautiful scales -- he will no longer be the most beautiful, but he will learn how to be truly happy. Can the rainbow fish sacrifice his most precious possessions, his scales? Or will he continue to be beautiful and spend all his days alone?
This sweet story teaches about the joy found in giving and sharing in a beautiful, colorful way!
