This is a truly lovely story to help teach the importance of sharing. My two children were captured by the glittering pages but the message within the story really made it for them, my eldest was particularly pleased he ended up with lots of friends

In my opinion this has got to be the most amazing book for young children. It expresses the values of sharing and friendship in the most beautiful way. 
The story is appropriate for all age groups (I've read this to my kids many times.. ages 3, 6 and 8). 
The pictures in the book are stunning and the glittery effects are captivating for younger listeners. They will all want to be involved in story time. 
I remember this book from school too ... 20 years ago. So glad it's still around in schools

As a Rainbow Leader, I bought the book for our bedtime story at sleepover for an underwater theme. I loved the sharing and friendship aspect of the story, which fitted perfectly.

Since the sleepover, the book has become a great addition to my children’s bookcase..they always seem to pick this book as has lovely illustrations as well as a lovely story.

One of the classic children's storybooks that teaches children about sharing and caring. I remember the story from being a child and now lots of children still love it!

Nanny and Daddy took Sophie to toddler tales and trails at our local park. She loves this session around this beautiful book around sharing and friendship, perfect for pre schoolers. She did some last art of the fish afterwards, she loves the bright colours of the fish.

Mixed review for this one - Personally I love it but my partner teacher can't stand it! I think it's a beautifully illustrated book about sharing with your friends as making others happy will inturn make you feel happy. But on the other hand,there is a dark side of people only being your friend if you give them what they want. The young fish wants a shiny scale and tells all the other fish - 'he didn't give me one' - so they do not speak to the rainbow fish either. The only way the rainbow fish can have anyone speak to him is by giving away his scales. I think it depends on your own experiences of bullying how you relate to this story.

The Rainbow Fish is the story of a fish who all the other fish look up to for his beauty as they wish they had sparkly scales but when a fish asks for one of the sparkly scales rainbow fish is reluctant to share. The children enjoy reading this book because of the beautiful illustrations of the underwater scenes and the eye catching sparkly scales. I think rainbow fish is a relatable character for the children as although he's not keen on sharing in the first place he does learn his lesson and get to feel how it is kind to share with others and this is something great for the children to learn and think about. I like how rainbow fish isn't forced but advised to share though and that he comes to that decision on his own as it's unrealistic to expect anyone to share everything they have and so I don't think we should encourage children that they have to share everything either and by allowing rainbow fish to think about why he might want to share is a great way to get children thinking about how others might be feeling and how it makes them feel. I think aside from rainbow fish the characters in this book are great as although rainbow fish has been a bit selfish and mean he is still given a second chance from the little blue fish and some valuable advice from octopus so although the book mostly revolves around just rainbow fish it has some great smaller characters. The children enjoyed reading the story of Rainbow Fish and it got them talking more about sharing, as with all the fish their favourite part of the story was the sparkly scales!
