Recensioner

I think this book should be used for intermediate students because the illustrations show a lot is going on and I am not sure if younger students would fully understand what is happening. The story is of a mouse and a lion in the jungle. The lion lets the mouse go and in return the mouse helps the lion out of being captured.

- Age: Primary

- A lion has the chance to eat a mouse but does not. The mouse ends up helping the lion after he got caught in a trap.

- I would have it in my classroom as it is a great example of helping others and sacrificing.

This book is appropriate for all ages.
This book is a retelling of a fable about a mouse who is caught by a lion and then let go only for the lion to get trapped and need to be rescued by the mouse.
This book would be useful when teaching about wordless books, making inferences, teaching the lesson of helping others or discussing fables.

This book is great for children at a beginner level. It's about a Lion that catches a mouse disturbing his sleep but decides to let the mouse go. The lion gets caught in a poacher's trap, and the mouse sets him free by nibbling on the net, returning the favor. I would love to introduce this book to a classroom of children ages 3-9, and I would help them understand the importance of mercy and empathy.
