You Can't Win Them All, Rainbow Fish

Marcus Pfister

Rainbow Fish and his friends are playing hide-and-seek. Rainbow Fish is the first to be "it." He has played this game so many times he believes that he knows all the hiding places in the shoal. Overconfident, he sets off to look. But he can't find anyone! Then, when Little Blue is the seeker, he finds Rainbow Fish immediately. Rainbow Fish angrily throws a tantrum and swims away. After a gentle reminder from his new friend, Red Fin, that sometimes you win and sometimes you lose, Rainbow Fish apologizes and learns a lesson about being a good sport. Ages 2 to 6.
