Nicolas, where have you been? tells the story about Nicolas the mouse who gets carried away by a big bird while collecting berries with his friends. He lives with the birds, they give him berries and they have fun. When he comes back to his friends he wants to tell them what happened but when they hear about the bird they get angry because the birds always get the good red berries before the mice. At the end Nicolas' friends the birds come and bring berries for all of them, and Nicolas' friends decide that “one bad bird doesn't make a flock”. This is a good opportunity to teach children about getting rid of prejudices against others ( )

As young Nicolas sets out on his journey across the meadow to gather berries, he is picked up by the claws of a huge bird! This is just the beginning of Nicolas' journey! Children will love traveling with Nicolas as he finds the berries and learns to trust some very unsuspecting animals. The reading level for this book is 2.9.

This is about a mouse who went looking for ripe berries and got taken by a bird. He eventually got away and landed in a nest filled with baby birds. They became friends and the mom would bring him ripe berries to eat. One day, he woke up and the birds had flown away. When he told his mouse friends the story, they were angry and wanted war on the birds. But once he explained the whole story, they were all happy and all became friends.

This book is about a field mouse named Nicolas who was unable to find ripe red berries to eat. All the birds had taken the berries and so the field mice became angry. While they were searching for berries a bird swooped down and picked up Nicolas. He was able to wiggle himself free and ended up in a nest in a tree with other birds. Nicolas made friends with the birds and had to explain to his friends that some birds are nice. This is a book that should be used for third or fourth grade. If I used this book I would skip a page because the graphic is too harsh for children. ( )
