Frederick the Mouse!

12 Jun 2010

The extended day kids read “Frederick” by Leo Lionni, a story. Then they made their own mice and scenery!

“In a community narrowly focused on efficiency, one mouse stands apart and concerns himself with art. Frederick notes the wonder of the world he lives in, and takes the time to assimilate it. While his cohorts may grumble at this behavior, when the dreariness of winter overtakes them they are grateful for Frederick’s words. Frederick’s poetry is seen as an essential supply for survival.”
