Grade Level: PreK-3rd
Summary: Rainbow Fish, by Marcus Pfister, is all about the value of friends. It teaches children that you cannot always stand alone. Sometimes you need help. Sometimes you have to make sacrafices! Together is always better!
Idea: I absolutely love this book. I would most definitely use this book for character education. I would stress the importance of not being selfish and being open to making new friends. An activity that I would use for this would be to label "the rainbow" fish. I would do this activity with my younger students, such as Kindergarten.
