I could use this book as a mentor text to demonstrate how good writers gather thoughts about what to write about. Leo Lionni did a wonderful job at using his senses to make his story come alive.Frederick collected the feelings of warmth. ( )

A cute story about a mouse who looks at things from another point of view. The pictures mainly tell the story.

This is a great picture books because of the strong illustrations to support the text. This is a great tool to teach writing and how to think about ideas using your five senses.

I really enjoyed this book. I really like the plot. It's hard to figure out at first. You want to just think that Fredrick is lying about "gathering supplies" since he says things like, "I'm gathering sun rays." However, everything changes when the mice run out of mood and ask for Fredricks supplies. He has the mice close their eyes while he describes bright colorful places, and writes them poetry. The mice were surprised and pleased with fredricks supplies. I also liked the illustrations. They were very simple, yet gave the audience a visualization about whats going on in each scene. The overall message of this story is to think positively even when you're surrounded by dark days. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0394826140, Paperback)

While the other field mice work to gather grain and nuts for winter, Frederick sits on a sunny rock by himself. “I gather sun rays for the cold dark winter days,” he tells them. Another day he gathers “colors,” and then “words.” And when the food runs out, it is Frederick, the dreamer and poet, whose endless store of supplies warms the hearts of his fellow mice, and feeds their spirits during the darkest winter days. Frederick’s story will warm readers as well in this Caldecott Honor winning fable.
