The Lion and the Mouse is an Aesop's fable about a lion that wants to eat a mouse who wakes him up. The story carries a deep message! This version by Illustrator Jerry Pinkney is the 2010 winner of the Caldecott Medal. The Randolph Caldecott Medal is awarded annually by the American Library Association (ALA) to the artist of the year's most distinguished American picture book for children.
Pinkney's pristine illustration talks, there is no need for words! Just gorgeous! Use his powerful drawings to teach your child the signs for the animals.
