This beautiful new show features three different stories featuring the Rainbow Fish. The first story, “The Rainbow Fish,” tells the story of the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colors of the rainbow. He is admired by the entire underwater world, but when he is unwilling to give any of his stunning scales away, he becomes the loneliest fish in the ocean. Following the advice of a clever octopus, he gives each fish one of his scales. The more he shares, the happier he becomes. “Rainbow Fish Discovery The Deep Sea,” the second story in the show, highlights further adventures. When his last glittering scale falls off and sinks down into the deep sea, Rainbow Fish finds the courage to follow it into the great unknown, discovering a new world with wonderful sights and friendly creatures of all shapes, sizes and colors. In the final story, “Opposites,” striking images from Rainbow Fish’s underwater wonderland introduce students to the concept of opposites such as up/down, in/out, over/under, big/little, long/short. Based on the books written and illustrated by Marcus Pfister.
