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!
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.
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
The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney/Aesop Fable
Little, Brown and Company Books got Young Readers
Even though this story does not have a lot of words the message and story comes across clearly with the pictures. This is an extremely famous fable with a good message
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.
