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.

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.

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.

While I did not have a favorite quote because of the lack of them, I really enjoyed a particular picture because the lion is so beautifully illustrated and shows his confidence and regalness without him having to say a word.

blurb

I would use this in a classroom, but I would read or watch the story of the lion and the mouse first so that the lack of words is not as detrimental. After reading or watching, then the incredible images add even more to the original story.

This book was different than some of the other books we had read of Traditional Literature. The book had not many words and was more geared towards the images. However, even with just images, it was clear that the images were following the original source story of a mouse saving a lion. For this book, the theme was still evident in that it does not always matter how big you are, everyone has their skills that can help when you least expect it.

Caldecott winner TL picture book, The Lion and The Mouse adapted by Jerry Pinkney, would be a great piece of text to incorporate in any elementary classroom as it has a different twist when it comes to interpreting the overall message! Having a tough time interacting in the beginning, Lion and Mouse become an unlikely pair that learn that no act of kindness is ever wasted. This book could be used as an IR as it is a wordless adaptation.

TristanPool UDL 3.3 and EL 17 can support this IR as students learn how to guide their process when gathering information and use body language and facial expressions to interpret unspoken messages. 2mo
TristanPool https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewResourceLesson/Preview/60830 provides a detailed lesson plan including guiding questions and practice, teaching concepts to hit with students, and an overall closure to the book‘s message. CPalms also includes accommodations and extensions for students who need extra help or more of a push academically! #UCFLAE3414F19 (edited) 2mo
Camrynm This book is adorable and gives a great message for all students. This lesson plan looks like it would be a great resource as well. 2mo
DrSpalding Your posts are thoughtful and provide additional information that is extremely helpful. You are correct that the Florida DOE website does include ideas to meet the needs of students that need additional assistance. 1mo

This is a good book that teaches children about good karma. By using animals, it will help keep the children interested and also keep their attention so they're soaking in the main points.

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!

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) 9mo
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) 9mo
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. 9mo

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, 9mo
Edenmonet promoting cooperation (small groups) and using student pairs for team learning, especially for reports and projects. Lesson Plan:
