The use of panel pictures in this picturebook are really helpful in making the story come to life as if it were a movie!

The Lion and the Mouse by Aesop and Jerry Pinkney, 2009. Traditional Literature.The incredible art within this picture book suggests the text for the story. Children can depict what is happening as this book contains nearly any words. In the story the lion spares the mouses life instead of eating him and in return the mouse sets the lion free. I love the relationship we see built between to animals that would in no way be compatible in real life!

I like how in the back of the book there is an artist‘s note to read what the story was about. People may have slightly different morals of the story to compare.

The illustrations are the most integral part of this book and are so realistic. This book would not be as impactful if the illustrations were average.

This is a wordless adaptation of one of Aesop‘s fables. An unlikely pair, a lion and a mouse pair up to learn that no act of kindness ever is wasted. This teaches so many great lessons that would be so valuable to early childhood classrooms.

This story is great when explaining predator and prey relationships (to an extent). It kind of puts a playful spin on a harder subject for some children. I love the personalities that the animals have.

The Lion and the Mouse is a Caldecott award winning book. This book is based of Aesop‘s fable “The Lion and the Mouse.” It is about a Mouse who accidentally disturbs a lions test and the Lion decides to release the Mouse. Later the mouse remembers this and frees the Lion from a trap.

The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney is such an adorable TL book and a perfect way to introduce a lesson of kindness, friendship, and sharing in the class room. This story has had the honor of winning the Caldecott medal. This story highlights ESOL strategies 1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 11, 16 and UDL principles 9.1, 9.2, and 9.3.

karamank I would have my students sit in a circle as I RA. When I finish I would have them each share a time they really showed their true kindness like the mouse and lion did for each other. I also found a really awesome lesson here: https://www.jewishlearningmatters.com/Lesson-The-Lion-and-the-Mouse-teaches-to-A... (edited) 6mo
karamank I would use the kindness coupons idea in my class room, which has students recieve a kindness award coupon when they show an act of kindness through out the day. This class story is an excellent chance to have students participate in class discussions and teach them how important it is to be kind to one another. #lae3414sp19 (edited) 6mo
DrSpalding Kindness matters. What an excellent idea to have children share examples of when they were kind to one another and connect it to this text. 6mo

The Lion and the Mouse (TL) by Jeremy Pinkny, Caldecott Medal winner, would be a great book to do a Storytelling (S) with because it only has illustrations. In this book, Aesop‘s fable is retold through beautiful, expressive illustrations. A lion spared the life of a mouse and when the lion is caught in trouble the mouse returns the kindness and helps him. The Lion and the Mouse is a perfect book to teach students that illustrations are important

Edenmonet to look at and add a lot of information to a story. The teacher reading this book can also play a youtube video of someone narrating the book while the students look at the illustrations. Lastly, the teacher can have students work in groups to come up with words for the illustrations. The UDL principles used are 2.5 and 8.3, illustrating through multiple media and fostering collaboration and community. The ESOL strategies used are 2 and 32, 6mo
Edenmonet promoting cooperation (small groups) and using student pairs for team learning, especially for reports and projects. Lesson Plan:

This story was published by Little, Brown and Company in 2009. This book is unique in the fact that it tells the story through only illustrations. It is about a lion who spares the life of a little mouse and when the lion later finds himself in trouble with hunters, the little mouse comes to save the day!

I enjoyed this book because it got the message around with just pictures and a few amount of words. A Caldecott medal winner and traditional literature. This book shows the relationship of the king of the Sahara and the tenny, tiny mouse becoming friends. After playing together, the mouse helped the lion down from the trap and the lion showed his appreciation for what the mouse did for him.
