 Rainbow Fish to the Rescue by Marcus Pfister

Rainbow fish has already given his shiny scales away to his friends. When a new fish arrives, Rainbow Fish and his friends don’t welcome the new comer until a bigger threat faces them all.  


How these stories are connected: When a dangerous shark appears, Rainbow Fish decides to risk everything to save the striped fish. Likewise, Jesus risks everything to help someone else.

Dear Jesus, thank you for being powerful and for doing good things. Help us to not be scared or jealous or mad when you do good things for other people. Amen.
