For educators

The rainbow fish is read and staged in preschools and schools. Here, educators will find many materials and inspiration for use in the classroom. If you are a school or library holding a rainbow fish event, please contact us at for free goodies.

I started using Rainbow Fish in my first class. Kindergarten, 26 years ago. I still use it in my fifth grade class this year. All of the books are great for lessons on friendship, empathy, and science.
