A great book to share with your children and students. It shows in a cute and tender manner how friendship and sharing are more important than appearence and selfishness. Easy to read and understand, even by non English speakers

Life lessons for children
The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister is an enchanting children's tale that relates how the discovery of a simple act of sharing with others can bring joy into one's life. The Rainbow fish who glitters brilliantly as he swims throughout the ocean brightens everyone's life by sharing one of his "dazzling" scales with each playmate.
Publishers Weekly, 1996-03-11 The hologram-hued hero of The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister will now glitter and shimmer in even younger hands, in a new board book edition. Also available in Spanish as El pez arco iris. (North-South, $9.95 ages 1-3 ISBN 1-55858-536-2, Spanish, -559-1, Mar.)
Publishers Weekly, 1992-11-02 Despite some jazzy special effects achieved with shimmery holographs, this cautionary tale about selfishness and vanity has trouble staying afloat. Rainbow Fish, ``the most beautiful fish in the entire ocean,'' refuses to share his prized iridescent scales--which, indeed, flash and sparkle like prisms as each page is turned. When his greed leaves him without friends or admirers, the lonely fish seeks advice from the wise octopus, who counsels him to give away his beauty and ``discover how to be happy.'' The translation from the original German text doesn't enhance the story's predictable plot, and lapses into somewhat vague descriptions: after sharing a single scale, ``a rather peculiar feeling came over Rainbow Fish.'' Deep purples, blues and greens bleed together in Pfister's liquid watercolors; unfortunately, the watery effect is abruptly interrupted by a few stark white, text-only pages. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
