Synopsis: While other mice are gathering food for the winter, Frederick seems to daydream the summer away. When dreary winter comes, it is Frederick the poet-mouse who warms his friends and cheers them with his words.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make the paper mouse shown at the end of the book, and act out the story.
•  Remember your favorite day? What emotions were you feeling? Make a hat of your feelings on that day.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
