I and my sister grew up with Frederick as one of the most sacred books in our childhood canon. Recently, while shuffling through boxes of ancient heirlooms, I came across the simple, unassuming cover of Frederick (in 1977 the cover showed only the back of Frederick in the lower right corner, gazing into the distance, and no title), and immediately a serene peace overcame me. I couldn't believe I had forgotten about this book. I sat down and read it again, and from a distance of twenty years it still resonated with me. This book brought calm and joy into my heart as a child, and did so again as I read it today. I can't think of any better recommendation for a book than that.
In terms of content, the story of Frederick is simple. In a community narrowly focused on efficiency, one mouse stands apart and concerns himself with art. Frederick notes the wonder of the world he lives in, and takes the time to assimilate it. While his cohorts may grumble at this behavior, when the dreariness of winter overtakes them they are grateful for Frederick's words. Frederick's poetry is seen as an essential supply for survival.
The illustrations are simple and yet extremely expressive -- witness my instant emotional reaction to a cover that was ninety-percent blank space -- and the wording is likewise concise. But the emotional impact of this book is what sets it apart. Out of sixty or seventy books I thumbed through today, I pulled out six that I felt defined my childhood. This book was at the top of the stack.

Das Buch "Frederick" berührt mich immer wieder!
Alle Mäuse sind emsig und sammeln Vorräte für den Winter! Nur Frederick tut scheinbar gar nichts- doch: er sammelt schöne Farben, Sonnenstrahlen und Wörter für graue trostlose Wintertage!

Gerade in der heutigen leistungsorientierten Gesellschaft ein gute Anregung um darüber nachzudenken, was Arbeit und Sinnhaftigkeit der Arbeit bedeutet und die Erkenntnis, dass jeder eine Lebensberechtigung hat, egal was und wie viel er "leistet"!

WUNDERBAR! So liebenswert geschrieben und rührend gemalte Mäuse!

This book is totally fabulous! I remembered this from my childhood, and stumbled across the German version one day in a book shop. Now I have got the English version through Amazon, and can't wait to share this with my son. The story really invites the child to use his imagination and is absolutely enchanting.

Nicht nur für unsere Kinder, auch insbesondere für mich ist dieses Buch sehr wertvoll. Eines unserer Kinder könnte ebenso Frederick heissen! Ich lese dieses Buch hin und wieder, um bei dem anscheinend faulen und unwilligen Kameraden auch die liebenswerten Seiten wieder schätzen zu lernen. Denn eben diese Eigenschaften sind letztlich auch Wärme und Nahrung für uns alle.

One of my favorite quotes in history is the verse from al-Koran: "If you have two loaves of bread, sell one and with the money, buy hyacinths to feed the soul." When reading this book as a child, I'd never heard that quote, yet now that I have, I can't think of anything that puts forth the quote's meaning so well as this book. Nicely done, Mr. Lionni!

Leo Lionni's simple shapes and bright colors make his stories great for read-alouds. The short text (1 to 2 sentences per double page spread)keeps young listeners' attention as the story flows smoothly along. In Frederick, Lionni's round, gray field mice prepare for winter. Only Frederick does not join the hustle and bustle of work. While the others gather food, Frederick dreams alone, gathering colors and words as a safeguard against the coming gray of winter. Later, he reveals his treasure to his more practical friends, and they realize the value of his poetic vision. The theme that each of us is unique is a favorite with children. Another reassuringly accepting tale from Leo Lionni.

This children's book is about a field mouse named Frederick who discovers he is a poet. All the other field mice are working hard to prepare for winter; but, Frederick seems to daydream all the time. When winter comes we see the value of his daydreaming and the importance of poetry and the arts. The book was a 1968 Caldecott Honor book (i.e., a runner-up to the Medal winner) for best illustrations in a book for children. I recommend the book highly.

I was introduced to this book by a friend who learned of my long creative block. With artists under continuous fire in this country it's hard to remember that we have an important and valuable job to do too. That is, to preserve memory and to inspire the other workers. Thanks to the author for his gentle reminder that cultural work is every bit as important than corporate work.

Leo Lionni is the masterful grandfather of children's books. FREDRICK is the most recent of his fine tales which are destined to become children's classics. He weaves a moral throughout his tales that the entire family can learn from. The illustrations are simple, yet poignant. (A fun project for little ones is to take construction paper and make their very own "Fredrick" mouse.)
Having a Leo Lionni book in the house is the next best thing to have your grandpa right there reading to you. Outstanding!

Frederick is the story of a mouse whose preparations for winter include gathering sunbeams instead of grains. When all their winter stores are used up Frederick warms the hearts and stomachs of his mouse family with a poem capturing the warmth and color of summer. This book introduces the value of poetry and spiritual food to readers of all ages with timeless illustrations.
