Lionni's illustrations in this book are great. I love the collage and how this can be a great activity for kids to replicate. This is a good story to teach kids how every individual brings something to the table, however different their approach may be.

Frederick is a dreamer. While the other mice are collecting food for the long cold winter, Frederick collects words, colors, and warmth to share. ( )

Fredrick is an awesome book about friendship. It shows students how to use descriptive words within their writing. I like how Fredrick is able to help his friends with his daydreams and make it through the winter.

This would be a great book to use when teaching expression because of the way Frederick explains his daydreams and feeling so vividly to the other mice.

Frederick is a book about a field mouse who daydreams while the other mice gather food for the winter. When winter comes and they run out of food, Frederick’s daydreams help the other mice to feel warm and full even though they aren’t.

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.
