With shiny, multi-colored scales, Rainbow Fish is the most beautiful fish in all of the ocean, and the only one of his (or her!) kind. When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his vibrant, shimmering scales, the whole ocean seems to turn against the vain creature. Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus, who helps him learn that it’s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful. With a bubbly, energetic score and a script that invites wonderful creativity and flexibility, the universal message at the heart of this delightful musical becomes much more than just a simple children’s story.

    "I'm so grateful for the summer reading program. The staff is always willing to help and get kids excited about book. My 9 year old has had a blast every time we visit, the passes you can checkout for echo, Shelburne Museum, etc. Are so helpful for a single mom. Thanks again for all the amazing experience!"

    "This library is wonderful, the staff is always friendly and the kids section often has many ways (aside from just reading) to keep you little ones entertained. Head here on a rainy day you will not regret it."

    "After being cooped up in the stroller downtown for most of a Saturday afternoon, we headed into Fletcher Free Library for a change of pace. They have a nice children's section with a great selection of books for every age group. There are tons of toys, blocks and puppets to play with, too."

    "This is a great library with the best kid selection around- and Robert and Gigi singing was a fun attraction! Unfortunately they don't reciprocate like all of the other towns do. You need to buy a library card if you aren't from Burlington."
