    " This is a Caldecott Medal winner, with no words, and phenomenal art! These kinds of books are wonderful for kids, because they have to try to figure out the story themselves. My five-year-old grandson and I had a blast guessing what was coming next. And by the way, this is not the traditional fable! "

    " Stunning. A book you can read over and over...even if it doesn't have WORDS. "

    " Terrific as a part of a traditional literature lesson. "

    " I'm not a fan of the watercolor style of the illustrations - though they are excellently done. This is a great book for children to tell to themselves because there are no words. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 10/30/2013

    " This book has beautiful watercolor illustrations! In this story, a lion decides to release the mouse that later saves his life. The pictures come to life, and words are not necessary to tell this tale. All it simply needs are the animal sounds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia Naranjo | 10/25/2013

    " This is a wordless book that shows, through artistic pictures, the relationship between a strong lion and a little mouse. The lion lets the mouse leave after he trapped him. The mouse convinced him that he can be useful is many ways. The lion does not really believe him, however one day the lion was trapped by hunters, and his only hope to escape is brought by his friend the mouse. Gr. PK-1 "

    " The Lion and the Mouse is an Aesop Fable about a tiny mouse who walks upon a lion. The lion doesn't like the mouse very much and intimidates him. The poor mouse goes on his way through the woods. After walking for a while the mouse hears a loud roar and sees the lion. The lion is very hurt and has a thorn stuck in his paw, which he can' t get out. The lion's paws are too big and he needs someone small to help take out the thorn. The mouse is there to help and he pulls the thorn out of the lions paw. Afterwards the lion and the mouse become friends because they helped each other out. This is a very famous Aesop Fable and children love this story. This book is illustrated amazingly using colored pencils and other forms of medium. The only thing I wish would change is that there was a little more wording throughout the book. Children that know this story would understand the illustrations, but a young child, who doesnt have complex critical thinking might find it a difficult book to analyze and understand. The illustrations definitely describe the story though. I love this book and I think that the fable is one that all children should know and grow to love. Definitely a great book to have in younger classrooms and would be a good book to have children read when talking about working together and helping each other out in the classroom. "

    " The illustrations tell the story, the only words are animal sounds. The book starts off with the mouse walking around and then is suddenly and unknowingly on the back of a lion. There is a beautiful illustration of the lion and the mouse after the lion picks up the mouse. All the other animals are surprised that the lion let mouse go, but when poachers catch the lion it is the mouse who breaks him free while all the other animals watch. It is a very precious story. "

    " Wow, we loved it. NO WORDS in the book, or even on the cover. Amazing illustrations that told the fable beautifully. "

    " Great illustrations to accompany the mostly wordless Aesop's fable. Good discussion generator for the preschool set. FUN! "

    " I enjoyed the illustrations. This was one of the better illustrated books I have seen. The illustrations will help students make predictions. "

    " Gorgeous illustrations tell a the classic story of the lion and the mouse without text. "

    " This is a wonderful pictorial re-telling of the fable with lush watercolors by Pinkney. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Smith | 3/6/2013

    " Wordless picture book. Can use it for a mini lesson to introduce synthesizing. Also use for the theme of friendship. "

    " AMAZING ILLUSTRATIONS. Enough said. BUY BUY BUY!!! "

    " I think the illustrations are great in this book! This book is great to have students create the stories using the clues!! "

    " Early childhood "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 5/9/2012

    " This was a lot of fun to read to Piper because I got to tell the story. Pinkney's illustrations do such a good job of showing the familiar fable, that the reader can use his/her own words to tell the tale. Pre-readers will enjoy being able to tell the story themselves as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lafcadio | 3/21/2012

    " A wonderful "retelling" of Aesop's story, but with no words at all. The illustrations tell this tale impeccably and beautifully. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheri | 1/29/2012

    " Beautifully illustrated, deserving of the Caldecott! "
