Traditional. This wordless adaption of one of Aesops fables tells the story of an unlikely pairing a mouse and a lion. The tale teaches us about kindness and how one act of kindness can go a long way and no act of kindness is ever a wasted act.

I liked this book. I liked how there was little to no words on every page but you still understood the story. I think this book would be better for younger grades. They can predict what happened next.

Absolutely stunning art but I'm not a fan of this particular fable. That art though!

Read the tagged book and loved it. It was my November double spin. My Name Is Yoon was another kids book read last night and was really good.

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.
UDL: Optimize relevance value and authenticity (7.2.)
ESOL: 7. Show students how to use graphic organizers like semantic mapping
and imaging

The Resource above gives you plenty of different printable activities that you can have your students complete after they have completed their PR.

DrSpalding I‘m curious about partner reading with this particular book. This is a wordless picture book meaning there are few to no words and just gorgeous award-winning illustrations. Would you have the partners tell the story using the pictures? 2y

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!

ValeriaCastaneda23 . The link provided is a wonderful read aloud version that tells the story Jerry Pinckney illustrated. UDL 5.1 use multiple media for communication and EL 11. Place language in meaningful context. In the link provided is a video of Jerry Pinckney discusses his work in the lion and the mouse! https://youtu.be/iptWPwWbwgM 3y
DrSpalding It is nearly wordless which means this would be a great mentor text for your students to create their own version of this traditional literature story. 3y

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.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.“ I think this is a very powerful quote from the book.

I would include this in my classroom library to expose my children to fables. Fables are a staple to American literature and it's important to share these stories with children.

“The Lion and the Mouse“ by Jerry Pinkey, 2009. Traditional Literature. This is a great story about an unlikely friendship. The plot is simple and direct, the characters are characterized simply to focus on the message.

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.
