Written And Illustrated by Jerry Pinkney
This book is a TL picture book Is about a Mouse that is spared by a lion and in return the mouse sets off to save the lion after he's been captured. I believe that this book would best be used in the classroom PR.

The Lion and the mouse illustrated by Jerry Pinckney is a wonder story of a developing friendship between two unlikely friends, a lion and the mouse. This picture book won the Caldecott award in 2010. Though it‘s a nearly wordless adaptation, the message of acts of kindness speaks volumes! I would teach my students that lesson through a RA!
Review: The Lion and the Mouse by Jerry Pinkney, 2009, is a Caldecott Winner about an unlikely pair and an act of kindness. It's a great example of the genre because of its beautiful illustrations.
Blurb: I would use this book in my classroom during a lesson on kindness and being nice to others. I would ask children what things they have done similar to what the mouse and lion did.
Quote: (no words)
This was a unique traditional literature book that I think kids would enjoy. The illustrations of the landscape and the animals help extend the story past the text. The plot is simple and direct and shows the kids that when you are kind to others it will be paid forward somehow.
