Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Frederick, the poet mouse, stores up something special for the long cold winter. His stories and poems entertain his friends, and the collage art is just right for the story.Times Best Illustrated Book, Caldecott Honor Book.
Wilson Library Bulletin
While other mice are gathering food for the winter, Frederick seems to daydream the summer away. When dreary weather comes, it is Frederick the poet-mouse who warms his friends and cheers them with his words.
From the Publisher
"A splendid achievement."—School Library Journal (Starred Review)

“In Frederick, a mouse who is a poet from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail demonstrates that a seemingly purposeless life is indeed far from that—and that we need not live by bread alone!”—Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar

“When dreary winter comes, it is Frederick the poet-mouse who warms his friends and cheers them with his words.” —Wilson Library Bulletin.

    Frederick

    Frederick and his family of mice are gathering the supplies that they are going to need for survival through winter. While the other mice were working hard gathering ¿corn and nuts and wheat and straw,¿ Frederick spends time gathering sunrays, colors, and words. When winter comes the mice all run to ¿their hideout in the stones.¿ At first the mice family was fine. But after a while they began to get low on food and supplies, but winter wasn¿t over. Then they turn to ask ¿what about your supplies, Frederick?¿ Leo Lionni lived in Tuscany, Italy until he passed away in October 1999. He is both an author and an illustrator. I thought this book has good use of black and white pictures. The story line also taught that people have different ways of dealing with situations, and that is okay. He is well known throughout the country for both his illustrations and stories. In 1959 he wrote his first book for his grandchildren on a dull train road. Leo Lionni has won four Caldecott Medal Awards, including Frederick.

    A Great Book For Kids

    This book is a beautiful story about a young mouse who while every member of his family are busily preparing a stockpile of food for the winter, Frederick, just sits around. While all through the book you are wondering why Frederick isn¿t doing anything to help, and what he really means by comments like, ¿I gather sun rays for the cold dark winter days,¿ and ¿I gather color, for winter is gray.¿ At the end, however, in the coldest part of winter, the little mouse family begins to run out of food, get colder, and finally no one even feels like talking. Read this wonderful book to find out what Frederick had been doing, and how he comes to his families¿ aid to get them through the cold winter days. The author of this book Leo Lionni lived in Tuscany, Italy until he passed away in October of 1999. Lionni is both an author an illustrator and is very well known for his work with both. He launched his career in 1959 when he wrote his first book for his grandchildren on a dull train road. Along with this book, Lionni has also won three other Caldecott Medal Awards for his books and his beautiful illustrations.

    A Classic. A defense of the Arts for children of all ages!

    While the other field mice toil all the day long in preparation for winter, little Frederick sits idly by, taking in the colors and images of the world. They think he's a bit lazy and resent doing all the work, but in the depths of winter when they are cold, hungry and miserable- it's Frederick who feeds their souls with visions and poetry! One of the best children's stories from the gentle master, Leo Lionni

    We All Have Gifts to Share

    To me, this book is very important and dear to my heart. It shows that some of us are not 'task masters' but artists, musicians and writers. They think and do things differently than those who are good at mastering a trade. I've held Frederick in my heart for 40 years since I first read it. He is a strong voice for those of us who may be considered 'different.'

    Some gather food and dig ditches, Frederick writes poems and sings. A good book to get kids to work smart and not too hard.

    greatest book ever

    It is filled with color and is a great book for children. It taught me to think on the bright side of things. It was about a field mouse (Fredrick) who collects all the colors from summer to save for the cold gray winter days, as the other mice are collect food. at the end of the story Fredrick shows his colors in a beautiful poem.
