I'll Give You the Scales Off My Back.

The Rainbow Fish - Marcus Pfister, J. Alison James

The Rainbow Fish grabs students' attention before reading the book. The cover and the pages within provide color and texture to keep students interested in the book. The Rainbow Fish is a tale about a fish who has so much pride in his scales that he loses friends when he refuses to share them. An activity that goes along with this book is for students to write a sentence about a good friend is and color a rainbow fish. This activity will hang in the hallway creating a large rainbow fish.
