I can't believe it has been 17 years since The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister came out. I was working in the bookstore and it was such a success. Parents loved the message of sharing for children but the children loved the sparkly scales on Rainbow Fish. This first book spawned a very successful series of books that totally delighted children. There was even a video~which my niece and nephews loved to watch at my house. They wore out the tape.
The newest title Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea tells of how Rainbow Fish loses his last glittery scale and trys to find it in a dark ocean trench. Along the way he makes new friends.
This whole series is a joy to children and should be rediscovered!
