Winter is coming, and all the mice are gathering food . . . except for Frederick. But when the days grow short and the snow begins to fall, it’s Frederick’s stories that warm the hearts and spirits of his fellow field mice. Lionni’s enduringly popular tale makes a winning addition to the Step into Reading line, letting young children enjoy this classic all by themselves.

Praise For Frederick (Step Into Reading, Step 3)

"A splendid achievement." —School Library Journal (Starred Review)

“In Frederick, a mouse who is a poet from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail demonstrates that a seemingly purposeless life is indeed far from that—and that we need not live by bread alone!”—Eric Carle, author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar

“When dreary winter comes, it is Frederick the poet-mouse who warms his friends and cheers them with his words.” —Wilson Library Bulletin
