Frederick

Frederick

This is the story of a wise little mouse named Frederick who spends his summer storing up supplies of a different sort while his family and friends are storing up food for the winter. Frederick doesn't lug any grasses into the mouse hole. Instead he sits and observed and takes into himself wonderful things from the world around him. When winter comes and the mice have food for their tummies and shelter to keep them safe and warm, it seems there is something missing. Frederick has stored up all the "something" they could ever want. Proof that we need more in our lives than just stuff. This book is a 1968 Caldecott Honors winner.
