The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister, J. Alison James

The Rainbow Fish is a great book about the importance of sharing and friendship. In the text, the Rainbow Fish brushes off all other fish when they comment on and want one of his beautiful scales. Soon, he learns to share them in order to be a good friend. This is a great text to provoke some awesome conversations about friendship and expectations in the classroom. One fun activity would be to have students make a rainbow fish and then put qualities of a great friend on each of the scales.
