The Rainbow Fish

written by Marcus Pfister

    The Rainbow Fish was the most beautiful fish in the sea.  He did not have any friends because he wouldn't share his shining scales with the other fish.  He could not understand why the other fish didn't like him.

    The Rainbow Fish went to ask a wise octopus why the other fish didn't like him.  The octopus advised him to give away his shining scales and he would have friends.

    The Rainbow Fish thought about what the octopus said and decided to share his shining scales.  The other fish were so happy and the Rainbow Fish felt good about sharing.

    What do you think would have happened to the Rainbow Fish if he decided not to share his shining scales?
