    1. Shanna Gonzalez on said:

      Bernadette Watts retells the classic Aesop fable, in which a mouse offends a young lion (in this version a cub). The lion extends mercy to the mouse, who promises to repay the favor someday. The lion laughs at the thought that someone so small could make a difference for himself, but many years later he is caught in a trap and the mouse is able to free him.Watts' interpretation is illustrated with gentle colors and a serene mood, even though the characters' lives hang in the balance. The traditi [...]

      While reading the fable "The Lion and the Mouse", I learned the valuable meaning of friendship. The lion and mouse represent how looks can be deceiving. People judge others based on their looks. Referring to this book specifically, the lion tries to eat the mouse because it is much smaller than him. However, the lion learns that the mouse was more help than he thought. The mouse gnaws away at the rope that's tying the lion up and frees him. The lion never thought that someone so different from h [...]

      The Lion and the Mouse is about a young mouse that comes across the paw of a very ferocious lion. The mouse pleas to have the lion let him go and for his gratitude he will return the favor in the future. Although the lion laughs about the thought of a little mouse helping a big strong lion as himself, he lets him go.This is a classic story of the best things in life come unexpected. When the lion least expects it, the mouse comes and saves the day. This is very relatable to life when sometimes y [...]

      A fine retelling of the fable with the characters given greater depth. Lush illustrations.

      Traditional Fantasy Grades P-2This retold tale of the classic Aesop fable was just as fun and creative as the original. I love the way this story mixes two unlikely partners together and they work together to form a friendship that helps them both survive. This story is fun and great for storytelling, and would be great to have students in a classroom act out, maybe even giving them twizzler candy to remind them of the rope and how we can help one another out with our own gifts and abilities. Th [...]

      This book starts off with cubs who are out in the wilderness with their parents, it seems to be a sunny day out so the cubs are growing tired. One particular cub isn’t as tired as the rest of the cubs, so he decides to rest under some shade a little ways from the other cubs and his parents. A small mouse stubbles upon the cub and awakens him, he sees how small and fragile the mouse is. So he tells the mouse to go on and that he won’t hurt her, the mouse is very grateful and therefore tells t [...]

      This story was a folklore. The age range for this story would be 4-9. This book is about a young cub who meets a mouse and spares him his life by not eating him and setting him free. The little mouse told the young cub that he will repay the favor one day to the lion but the lion said he didn't need his help because the mouse was far to small. Later on though the lion gets trapped in net and the mouse has to chew threw the rope to set the lion free. I rated this book five stars. I did this becau [...]

I believe the book is a good read for children above the age of six. The concept of the book can be hard to grasp in children younger than that. I would use [...]

      The artwork was simple and pleasant, and the colors were mild. The storyline is based on one of Aesop’s fables. It keeps the child’s attention. The story can be enjoyed by almost any child of any age group. The storyline is standing the test of time because it is still being enjoyed today. The vocabulary targets the pre-school child. The story is a classic and can be used to discuss the golden rule: “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This is a great book to start teachi [...]

      As a strong believer in karma this was the perfect fable for me to read. When one does something good or bad to another, in some shape or form they will have something good or bad happen to them. If I had a classroom we would most likely read this book the first week of school to explain the importance of good karma and how we want to try and do nice things for others to build up our positive karma happening. I would probably of around the room and ask students to remember a time when they were [...]

      This story is about a lion who spares a little mouse's life by the mouse telling him, "if you spare my life, i might be able to help you out one day". The lion thinks its soo funny that this mouse thinks he could help out the "King of Beasts". Anyways, he lets the mouse go. At the end of the story, Lion ends up getting caught in a net by hunters. The little mouse runs over and saves the lion by chewing through the rope. Do unto others as they've done to you :)

      This fable is like most of Aesop's. It has a fun story line with a good message at the end. The friendly characters make it entertaining for children, but also teaches them something. The same goes for about any fable I suppose. Most people have heard this story at some time in their life, I believe. I certainly heard it many times when I was younger, but it was still a nice reminder to help others because you never know how it may help you in your future.

      This picture book is absolutely incredible in every way. The illustrations are so vivid, detailed, and bright that immediately grasp the readers attention. There are barely any words in this book, so it was up to the pictures to tell the story. In my opinion, they did just that and more. The moral of this story is one that children and adults should take to heart. I highly recommend this book for children of all ages.

    14. Alison on said:

      This book could introduce the disscusion of fabels into a classroom. This is a godd read aloud story that many students seem to stay engaged in. I have seen this book read to a kindergarten grade classroom and it was a sucess when introducing this topic.

    15. Christy Hathcock on said:

      This is a classic fable tale that teaches the great lesson that no one is too small or insignificant to be of help. This is an important lesson for every teacher to learn because everyone in their classroom can add a great deal.

    16. Nicole Holden on said:

      I enjoyed reading this book. I loved the way the Lion shows mercy for the little mouse. This book is great for students that think they are too small to do any thing. Little people can do GREAT things.

    17. Dolores on said:

      A wonderful retelling of the classic Aesop fable with a little twist. I love the illustrations.

    18. Tierra Garr on said:

      I read this with my class when we were learning about fables. The lion learns his lesson and learns not to judge someone by their size.

    19. Madison on said:

      Good book to read to students about fables. I also think that adults could get a good message by reading this.

    20. Jo Miller on said:

      Tale of a big mighty creature that doesn't need help. But when he does need help then a little creature helps him. Shows that size does not matter.
