PreS-K—It is difficult to understand what the creative impetus might have been for this picture book. There is little, if anything, that is new in the story line. Little Rainbow Fish is having difficulty falling asleep and wants his mother. He thinks of different scenarios in which he might get scared and asks if she will be there for him. Of course, she answers that she will protect and love him no matter what. Sounds familiar? The bright color illustrations of the fish are filled with familiar silvery scales that children are bound to enjoy. Overall, though, the book is nothing special.—Mary Cass Mabbot, Indianapolis Public Library, IN
