    1 thought on “Nicolas, Where Have You Been?”

    1. This book is a good example for children that there is good in everyone even if they've done some not so nice things in the past. I would use this book to help children talk about their feelings and their friendship with their friends. We would talk about how even though friends can sometimes hurt each others feelings, friends can still care about one another and treat one another nicely.

    2. This book is from my favorite author Leo Lionni. The book tells reader a very warm story. Some field mice want to eat the sweetest and juiciest berries, but the birds got these berries before them. Nicolas decided to look for a berry patch that the birds have not yet discovered. It meet a big, ugly bird, and the bird grabbed him with its sharp claws and carried him up into the sky. Nicolas landed in a nest and he know there little birds, they become good friends. their mother bird give the ripe [...]

    3. After being abducted by a large bird, Nicholas Mouse begins an adventure in which he experiences first hand Uncle Raymond’s words of wisdom: “one bad bird doesn't make a flock.” Lionni’s modern fable is an excellent tool for teaching Jane Schaeffer’s techniques for writing literary analysis. The story’s moral can serve as a stated thesis that students must support with textual evidence, explaining concrete details gleaned from Lionni’s colorful mixed media collages that have been b [...]

    4. My favorite part of this book--as with all of Lionni's works--the illustrations. Nicolas is a young mouse who wants to eat berries and blames the birds when he can't find any red, ripe, delicious berries. His tune changes when a nice family of birds takes care of him, bringing him red berries everyday and caring for him as one of their family. It holds an important lesson about judging or loving others. This book is better for at least a three-year-old.

    5. This is a cute little book with a good message. I liked the attitude of little Nicolas and wondered where the story would take him. I'm glad this book had a happy ending. I would recommend, especially to people who are fans of mice.*Taken from my book reviews blog: reviewsatmse/2009

    6. Overall this book was pretty standard Lionni fare, but I was taken aback at the two-page spread illustration of an imagined battle between mice and birds, including some bloody and very dead animals. And I'm not easily shocked. Other than that, it's Lionni's usual message about making nice with all of God's creatures and with the earth.

    7. Good message of not judging everything in a category by a single encounter but the book contains some strong angry imagery.

    8. Nicolas was consorting with the enemy whom all the other mice wanted to stab with sticks. Then they all became friends in the end. It was an ok book for me.
