    I thought I knew where this story was headed and then was totally surprised Frederick and his family live in a rock wall near an abandoned barn While Frederick s counterparts spend the seasons gathering food in preparation for the hard winter, Frederick spends his days not working I loved the illustrations and verse throughout.Written in 1967, Frederick won the Caldecott Honor award, and Lionni himself was awarded with both the Graphic Arts Gold Medal in 1984, and the Society of Illustrat I thought I knew where this story was headed and then was totally surprised Frederick and his family live in a rock wall near an abandoned barn While Frederick s counterparts spend the seasons gathering food in preparation for the hard winter, Frederick spends his days not working I loved the illustrations and verse throughout.Written in 1967, Frederick won the Caldecott Honor award, and Lionni himself was awarded with both the Graphic Arts Gold Medal in 1984, and the Society of Illustrators Lifetime Achievement Award posthumously in 2007 Most of his books are considered children s classics, and I look forward to readingof his work

    A cute little beginning book story about making it through hard times Sometimes, it s not only about the physical things you need like food, but it s also about hope and stories 5 little mice are gathering food for the winter to come Frederick soaks up sun, colors and words He knows those things are needed throughout the winter When they run out of food, Frederick shares his gifts and it makes the mice feel better.I know now that Caldecott is about the art and not the story This is a great A cute little beginning book story about making it through hard times Sometimes, it s not only about the physical things you need like food, but it s also about hope and stories 5 little mice are gathering food for the winter to come Frederick soaks up sun, colors and words He knows those things are needed throughout the winter When they run out of food, Frederick shares his gifts and it makes the mice feel better.I know now that Caldecott is about the art and not the story This is a great story, but the art had nothing special to it It looks like construction paper cut out and put together or something It is not a winning style of art in my opinion and I am no expert I give the artwork a 2 and the story a 4 The children had fun with this story The niece kept asking why isn t Frederick helping That s really rude isn t it The nephew wanted to know if a lion was going to eat them The niece thought the story was good She liked how Frederick made people feel better She gave this 4 stars The nephew said, At least this book is short Frederick could have farted or something That s my nephew He gave this 2 stars

    A short picture book about mice preparing for winter, focusing on one mouse Frederick who doesn t quite fit in They give him a hard time, but in the middle of winter, the other mice come to appreciate the poetry that Frederick has to offer It s a good message overall And the illustrations are lovely.

    This is the best book in the entire history of planet earth not only are the pictures of little paper mice awesome the story is about a little lazy mouse who keeps getting yelled at because he sleeps and just sits there all day but he is day dreaming and then the mice are like WTF frederick, get your ass up and help, and he s like, no way, im collecting colors for the winters are grey then in the end all the food is gone and frederick recites poetry and saves everyones life BEST BOOK EVER.

    So the story goes that you have 5 mice Four of them work their little mousey tuchas off to gather enough food to eat for the winter and enough hay to keep warm Frederick sits on his butt and does jack When the other mice confront Fredrick, he tells them that he is collecting colors for the dreary winter days or that he is collecting words So the winter comes and the other mice are generous enough to let Frederick eat their food and keep warm due to their collective gathering Towards the en So the story goes that you have 5 mice Four of them work their little mousey tuchas off to gather enough food to eat for the winter and enough hay to keep warm Frederick sits on his butt and does jack When the other mice confront Fredrick, he tells them that he is collecting colors for the dreary winter days or that he is collecting words So the winter comes and the other mice are generous enough to let Frederick eat their food and keep warm due to their collective gathering Towards the end of winter food becomes scare That is when Frederick paints mental pictures of summer and shares bad poetry with them Art for art s sake is lovely and all, but you still need to be a contributing member of society Being a philosophical thinker doesn t mean that you should get out of hard work or force others to carry you through life Had Frederick actually got off his rock and helped collect food whilst paying attention to his surroundings, perhaps the mice would not have gone without and still had his bad poetry to suffer through Speaking of the bad poetry Frederick s poem does actually have a nice little moral The poem talks about how there are four seasons, each unique and important in its own right, just like the four mice sitting there Funny that Frederick excludes himself Perhaps he grasps how unimportant his role is to his mouse community I think I would have really enjoyed the book had Frederick gotten off his lazy duff and spent his off hours dreaming away Friends don t let friends starve to death

    As someone who has always had a dreamy, artistic temperament and has also often been told that I am therefore by nature lazy and indeed that I should not even be getting a paid salary for simply teaching language, literature and the like, I have to admit that many of thenegative reviews of Leo Lionni s Frederick that I have read online over the years and in particular the ones that pontificate about Frederick being a good for nothing and lazy lay about, that poets are parasitical, that As someone who has always had a dreamy, artistic temperament and has also often been told that I am therefore by nature lazy and indeed that I should not even be getting a paid salary for simply teaching language, literature and the like, I have to admit that many of thenegative reviews of Leo Lionni s Frederick that I have read online over the years and in particular the ones that pontificate about Frederick being a good for nothing and lazy lay about, that poets are parasitical, that those of us who are artistically inclined at best take away from real and true workers and labourers, that we are therefore insignificant and oh yes, that of course we supposedly are also one and all Marxists absolutely infuriate me to no end For let s face it, not everyone is meant to be a farmer or a physical labourer and with Frederick Leo Lionni clearly demonstrates that for the field mice it is actually muchessential and necessary for poet field mouse Frederick during the harvest season to gather inspiration, colours and images instead of helping to gather in the crops so that come the greyness and cold of winter, he is able to cheer up his family and sustain them spiritually and poetically that poetry, words and lyricism, that spiritual sustenance are in every way just as important and as required as the physical necessaries of enough food, water, and a decent place to live And believe you me, us poets, authors, teachers, professors, artists etc., yes we do generally work very hard, and if I am preparing a language lesson, marking exams, even if I am just reading for academic purposes or even for pleasure , if I am writing a book review, an article or editing my or someone else s writing, I am working in my own way just as much and as hard as a farmer labours in his or her own way and indeed vice versa and in my opinion, anyone who does not realise and understand this, is at best a trifle if not actually majorly naive Four stars for Frederick for although narrative and text wise, I would definitely want to consider Frederick as a five star offering, and with a very important and necessary art and the importance of poetry promoting message, I am just not that much of a personal fan of Leo Lionni s illustrations, which although bright and colourful are also rather too one dimensional and emotionally stagnant for my own aesthetic tastes, their Caldecott Honour designation notwithstanding

    Lately, I have been re reading many children s books that I have not read since I was a child and Frederick is one of those books I have not read for awhile Frederick is a Caldecott Honor book by Leo Lionni and it is about a laid back mouse named Frederick who seems to get out of his duties of preparing food for the winter, but ends up hiding an extraordinary secret Frederick is definitely a children s book that children who love reading about poets cannot resist Wow I was really impre Lately, I have been re reading many children s books that I have not read since I was a child and Frederick is one of those books I have not read for awhile Frederick is a Caldecott Honor book by Leo Lionni and it is about a laid back mouse named Frederick who seems to get out of his duties of preparing food for the winter, but ends up hiding an extraordinary secret Frederick is definitely a children s book that children who love reading about poets cannot resist Wow I was really impressed with how Leo Lionni made poetry into an interesting concept in this book Leo Lionni s writing was simple yet beautiful at the same time, especially the end where Frederick recites his poem, which I will not reveal since I do not want to spoil this book for you, but it truly was a moving piece of art I also loved the way that Frederick was portrayed as a laid back mouse that just explores the world around him and puts it into a poetic prose which shows how inventive he truly is Leo Lionni s illustrations were cute and simple and I really loved the images of Frederick and the mice themselves as they have round gray bodies, large round eyes and long grey tails and I love the way that the images look like they were cut out of cardboard as the outline of their bodies seem a bit rough among the edges.The reason why I gave this book a rating of four stars is because I thought that the ending was a bit too abrupt as I felt thatshould have been said after what happened to the mice after winter was over.Overall, Frederick is a truly cute and inspiring book for children who love to become poets as much as I do and they want to find a picture book that would inspire them into the world of poetry I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book

    You read correctly The book with the cute little poetic mouse holding a flower is maybe the only book to which I would give a one star review This was on the recommended reading list for my four year old and I read it to him, excited because all the books on the list were so good I ll have to start screening the picture books from now This story is about a mouse who daydreams and writes poems while the other 4 mice in his small community gather nuts and straw for the winter When the are all You read correctly The book with the cute little poetic mouse holding a flower is maybe the only book to which I would give a one star review This was on the recommended reading list for my four year old and I read it to him, excited because all the books on the list were so good I ll have to start screening the picture books from now This story is about a mouse who daydreams and writes poems while the other 4 mice in his small community gather nuts and straw for the winter When the are all starving toward the end of the winter, you know, because he didn t help collect food, he soothes them with some lovely poetry and sentiment Sorry folks, you can create poetry, art and beauty while contributing to your small society who needs you to contribute the bare necessities Refer to Maslow s Theory of Heirarchial Development The wrong message for little children who don t feel like contributing in a way that doesn t earn applause Really, I couldn t believe my eyes when I came to the end of the story and there was NO MORAL Aesop would roll over in his grave

    This story is going to be my go to every time someone accuses me of being lazy Jeremy Why aren t you helping us lift this dresser onto the moving truck You should at least do SOMETHING I am doing something I am absorbing colours into my memory and composing a sonnet in my head Oh dear, Jeremy s trying to Frederick his way outta work again

    There are days I want to retreat to my pillow and blanket fort I tend to like picture books on those regressions, either colorful cookbooks or cute children s books And this book fell into my basket at the library I was sure I read it before, but that didn t matter I like it I was going to put 4 stars because I felt it lacked a bit of how can I say it a punch But after reading other reviews, I am giving 5 stars to support the book s morals or what some people call the lack thereof So There are days I want to retreat to my pillow and blanket fort I tend to like picture books on those regressions, either colorful cookbooks or cute children s books And this book fell into my basket at the library I was sure I read it before, but that didn t matter I like it I was going to put 4 stars because I felt it lacked a bit of how can I say it a punch But after reading other reviews, I am giving 5 stars to support the book s morals or what some people call the lack thereof So Frederick doesn t work while other mice work hard to prepare for the winter Aesop has already condemned such lazy bones, and you are free to leave this book and pick up the classic Aesop if you are in his camp I assume such people also frown at Anna Karenina for committing adultery I, for one, am impressed how civilized the mice are The other four mice were not necessarily happy with Frederick, but they let him in and share the food anyway Wow How many of us has this much of tolerance and compassion What Frederick has to offer doesn t matter to some people They want efficient, judgmental society with no arts When they feel so cold and gray, they might finally notice something is missing
