Frederick by Leo Lionni
It is almost winter, and a family of field mice prepare for the cold. Each mouse spends night and day gathering food. That is, each mouse except for Frederick. Instead, Frederick gathers sunbeams, colors, and words for when the winter feels too long and cold.
Leo Lionni provides great collages to illustrated this charming story. When the winter starts to feel too long and cold, Frederick will cheer you up!
