The Rainbow Fish was simply "the most beautiful fish in the entire ocean." He had scales that "were every shade of blue and green and purple, with sparkling silver scales among them." Not only was he the most beautiful, but the other fish were impressed too. When the other fish invited him to play with them, he would just glide by. But he did enjoy being admired.
When one of the fish asked for a scale, the Rainbow Fish haughtily told them to leave. Pretty soon everyone avoided the Rainbow Fish, and he was lonely.
The rest of the story describes how Rainbow Fish achieved happiness through sharing. In the process, he makes the whole ocean more beautiful and his own life a study in connectedness. Psychologists tell us that people have both a need to be distinctive and a need to be connected. Those desires can cause behavior that improves one satisfaction at the expense of the other. The Rainbow Fish effectively shows how the two dimensions can be combined through locating and sharing with others who have the same interests.
This book will be improved by some discussions because a child may not have the experience to know how to extend the moral of this story into her or his own life.Read more ›
