The Lion and the Rat by Brian WildsmithThe Lion and The Rat is a fable written La Fontaine, and is illustrated by Brian Wildsmith. The book features an unlikely friendship between a lion and rat, who repay the others kind favors to help save the other one. The lion and the Rat is considered a fable because it is a fictional story that clearly states a moral lesson. At the end of the story the lion becomes trapped in a net in the forest and every animal that comes before can not free the lion. But when the rat comes along he is able to free the lion by chewing through the net. A quote from the book says, So the little rat, by patience and hard work, was able to do what the lion, in all his strength and rage, could not. I think this book would be excellent for 1st and 2nd grades because of the simplistic text and the colorfully designed illustrations throughout. Also, with the help of a unlikely friendship, young students can learn the value of hard-work and helping others.
