Title: The Lion and the Mouse
Author and Illustrator: Jerry Pinkney
Why I Love this Book: This book is essentially wordless, as the story is told through the incredibly beautiful illustrations. A book like this can be used with children who are just developing their literacy skills, as well as fluent readers, as wordless picture books can be a valuable way to work with concept of print, comprehension, story sequencing, and more. This book is a great way to experience this classic fable through illustrations that capture the life and emotion of the story.
