Advantages: good message, good illustrations
Disadvantages: cant think of any..
I really like this book. It is sweet and gentle and it has a lovely message in it. (to share and that sharing will in turn make things nice for you) The Rainbow fish is the most beautifull fish in the sea but he is also the most lonely until he learns to share...
The illustrations are lovely soft and blue (the colour <g>) and my daughter loves looking at the shinny scales that the rainbow fish has.
The book leaves lots of scope for talking about things after. Like Sharing, being nice to each other, being beautiful or not..
My oldest daughter was given this book when our youngest daughter was born and she has loved it since the first time we read it to her, and I have yet to tire of reading it for her.
A lovely sweet (and not to long) book.
